The sport of Olympians and outlaws is an excellent choice for a stag do. Archery requires skill, strength and icy cool in the face of danger. Do the Robin Hood thing in the grounds of a rambling country estate on the outskirts of Edinburgh. You'll be pretending to be King Leonidas from 300 as soon as your first quarrel (that's the proper name for an arrow, donchaknow) has whanged into the target.
Anyone can try archery. Beginners learn the 12 steps to the basic archery shot. You'll be nocking the arrow; drawing and releasing like a pro in minutes. Once everyone's up to speed, it's every stag for himself as the instructors start keeping score.
Top tip: draw the string at a safe distance from your cheek, unless you fancy going out and about ibn Edinburgh's finest clubs looking like you've applied blusher to one side of your face!
It's not every day you get the chance to try archery at one of Edinburgh's finest stately homes. Impress your mates, get the blood pumping and unleash your inner hunter amidst thousands of acres of awesome Scottish countryside.
