Edinburgh Stag Do and Hen company is Edinburgh’s premier stag night and hen party organisers. Whether you want to customise your own tailor made Edinburgh Stag Do or Hen Party package or you are on a budget and want to book one of our inexpensive tried and tested stag packages you can do it all right here.



If money is a bit tight for some some of the lads, you can still pull off a great weekend in Edinburgh.

Biggest issue is finding budget priced accommodation in Edinburgh city centre that will accept stags and Hens. Expect £18-£22 per night.  Be prepared for bunk beds in big rooms and the requirement to pay a hefty security cash bond on arrival.


Next step up would be our City Rooms properties which will set you back about £25-£30 per persons per night.  This would get you en suite Rooms with TV and separate beds (NO BUNKS). A security deposit of approx. £25 per person will be required in case of damages and because the lads generally behave a bit better as they want their deposit back.

If you get stuck finding somewhere contact Edinburgh Stag are also own budget priced properties in the city centre so we can offer some great options.


In case of delays, and because some of the Stag Group are likely to arrive at different times, keep the first night simple.  This is a marathon afterall!.  I would suggest a cheap activity like Bar Hoppingwhere we can arrange time slots at some great bars clubs.  Other cheap options would be a pub sports night with pool, darts and Dominoes. 


Most activities will set you back about £35- £50 per person.  Many of these are located on the outskirts of Edinburgh and beyond.  These will require transport costing At least £10-£15 per person. To keep the price down for the lads you should consider activities in the city.  Indoor Paintball is a great option  or if you are feeling energetic Bubble Football or 5 a sides


A Guided bar Crawl with or without our Beautiful Barcrawl Babes which is the deluxe option will tick most of the boxes.  You will be collected and taken to a number of great bars and receive a free shot or drink in each as well as drink promotions.  In case of emergency we can also arrange a Lap Dancing bar if required. The night will finish with guaranteed VIP entry into a club.  Bar Crawl will set you back £15-£25 dependent upon how many persons and which option you require. The Bar Guides are with you for about 4 hours.

Another cool option is our Party Bus which will take you round the city stopping at a number of bars and clubs.  Same idea with free shots and VIP club entry.

Brilliant Weekend, thanks to all who made this happen. Boys loved the City Centre apartments what a great location!.

George Wilson

Hi John – just to let you know that the stag weekend (18th-20th) went very well and I just wanted to thank you for your organisation.  The accomodation, transport and activities were all spot on and contributed to a great weekend for all.

Michael McGowan

Great highly recommended. The Rock Star package really ‘Rocked Out’. Making the CD was a blast.

Caroline Jones

It was excellent. Been meaning to get in touch to say thank you. Hotel was spot on, good location. Transport excellent, good night club. Couldn’t fault any of it. The comedy club wasn’t hilarious but most lads enjoyed it.

All in all a really great weekend. Thank you very much.

Chris Everidge

Hello John! Just a note to say tat everything went realy well and felt likeit was organised brilliantly 🙂

Even though there was only 4 of us, everyone had a really good time and were happy – especially the rage buggies, fantastic fun. For future ref: 1 person per buggy, 700cc (upgraded from the normal models) reach 50miles an hour. They cost £15,000 each and when you race, you can take people over (up to 6 on the track during the practice laps) and its cracking good fun!

Sam Mercer

John thanks again for arranging our Hen party weekend. Everything went wonderfully well. The girls are still raving about the apartments. What a great location

Susan Wilson

The lads reallly enjoyed the carting and the bus driver that they had for the day was absolutely great – clay pigeon shooting was ok – but could have been better – although I do think some of it was our fault as a lot of them had shot before which i should have maybe stated to you.

Lynn Horn

Trustpilot Steven & Jayne, Bolton 03/05/2022

We had a great Stag weekend with my friends. We had our weekend booked and organised just before lockdown. Clearly these were uncertain times and two years later I decided to reorganise the weekend when restrictions eased John was very accommodating and everything ran smoothly. Activities included a group meal on the Friday night, Hearts FC hospitality package on the Saturday afternoon before a Babes bar crawl on the Saturday night (Which ensured 22 lads were kept together and we gained entry without fuss to all bars and night clubs) All the lads enjoyed the weekend

Nadene Gray 02/05/2022

I couldn’t thank John at Edinburgh…
I couldn’t thank John at Edinburgh enough. He went to great lengths to help book our mini Highland Games day. We had so much fun. 5 star ⭐️

Andy Baldwin 02/05/2022

Fantastic Stag Do
John was fantastic with the organisation of the stag do. We tried out the mini highland games for 9 of us, which was thoroughly enjoyed by all and really bought out a competitive nature in everyone. Would recommend this event to everyone! The transport was great too, right on time and the driver was very pleasant.

Sophie 03/05/2022

Highland Games review
Really enjoyed the Mini Highland Games as part of a Hen weekend. Staff were great and got everyone involved. Organising was made really easy by John who was great in adjusting our booking and organising the transport.

Ryan Brookes 03/05/22

Helpful and Easy
John was very helpful throughout and made sure everything ran smoothly. Perhaps a little slow to respond at times, but always helpful and made sure our weekend went as well as possible.

Joseph Gough 11/10/2021

5-star review of
We did the Mini Highland Games and also the Paintballing through John at Edinburgh Stag & Hen Do Co. Both things went off without a hitch and the travel to and fro was perfectly on time. We also booked the accommodation on Gilmore Pl. With 18 fellas on the trip the accommodation had it's own key pad systems for each room and for the front door! No need to be bothering anyone about lost keys etc.

James F 04/10/2021

Highly Recommended!
We booked the Highland games followed by a whiskey tasting and it was fantastic! The day went seamlessly, we were picked up from where we requested by a minivan and then taken to the games which were run by a fantastic instructor, then back to the centre where we had the whiskey tasting. John was quick to respond, easy to get in touch with and organised everything we needed for a great day. He went above and beyond with recommendations on places to go and eat/drink too, would highly recommend anyone wanting to book a stag do in Edinburgh to use him! Thank you!

Joanne Ritchie 30/09/2021


What a fantastic day. We did the mini Highland games for my sister’s hen. Everyone absolutely loved it. Everything was well organised and it was a right laugh and we got to try lots of different activities. This suited our group as we had mix ages and one member of the group was pregnant so people were able to sit out certain activities if they didn’t feel up to it. Was lovely getting out of the city for a while and we got a stunning day for it. Thank you all again for such a great experience. We will definitely recommend this to friends.

James Gutteridge 30/09/2021

The Mini Highland games were so much fun! The stag group I was with had a great time and really thought it was the highlight of our weekend-long trip to Edinburgh. The drive out from Edinburgh was just over an hour and our large group of 12 people meant that we had about 2 hours at the farm taking part in the games, which was well worth it. The setting was great and we really leant into the team spirit - as well as insulting each other all through the event, which really got everyone laughing. Really really great time. Highly recommend!
