More Information

River Bugs Edinburgh are the latest things to hit the UK shores from the adventure island called New Zealand. Those Kiwis are always bringing us the latest crazy activities, I mean who else would come up with the Bungee Jump?!
River Bugs, which are a cross between a white-water raft and an armchair, 1-person rafts that are like a giant inflatable armchair! Inflatable chambers ensure you stay on top of the water, while extra thick padding turns crashing through rocks and white water into a low-impact dodgems ride.
River bugging trips are available on the River Tummel and River Tay all year round. The activity operates, 7 days a week. River bugs are a great way to play on the river if you want that little bit more excitement, and are ideal for summer river levels as you don’t have to wait for the rain to gain the thrills of the outdoors!
After receiving expert instruction from our experienced river bug guides. You will be able to run the rapids, catch eddies, surf standing waves and even pirouette!. We’ll get you out on the river(complete with your webbed gloves) and help you negotiate your own path down the white water rapids.
Maximum group number is 22 as we have a fleet of 22 river bugs.

5-star review of edinburghstag.com:
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.

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!

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.

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!

Excellent. John was great from the get-go, quick to respond, and very easy to get in touch with. As soon as the stag group stopped messing around with what they wanted to do John immediately gave me a price and got it all booked. A few weeks prior we had another couple of latecomers. This didn't pose a problem and John made the changes to the booking.

The day itself was fantastic. The bus driver picked us up at the time and place arranged and got us to the mini Highland Games. This was great fun and I would definitely do it again. Petrol karts to follow were a hit with the guys a certainly worth it.

Highly recommend-- a PERFECT day =)
We searched for something that would be fun for all ages for a pre-wedding event. There were 10 of us (aged 30-80) and Bert at the Clay Pigeon Shooting Range was absolutely phenomenal. He made sure all of us were able to hit some of the targets (no matter how terrible we were to start). Such an amazing instructor. Thank you to John for arranging and Bert for making a perfect day out!

Edinburgh Stag took all the pressure…
Edinburgh Stag took all the pressure and stress out of organising my son’s stag do. John was extremely helpful, giving me a few options to suit my budget. We had 3 activities book. John had a backup plan in case of unseen problems. Their accommodation in the city centre catered for the 14 person party. More than enough space as the property could sleep over 30. Clean and comfortable. A definite 10/10 from me!
