Roads and wheels are overrated. If you're up for a hilarious driving experience on a stag weekend, take a bunch of hovercrafts for a spin round a countryside course just 30 minutes from Edinburgh city centre. It's like dodgems gone absolutely mental.
Hovercrafts are basically huge air cushions with no brakes. Even the best driver in the group will have a devil of a time controlling one of these massive windbags. When you've mastered the controls, it's straight into the time trials. Hit the cones and you'll rack up penalty points. Funny, frustrating and intensely competitive, hovercrafts will have you cursing, shaking your fists and laughing like loons.
Adrenaline junkies will love the rush and petrol heads will welcome the chance to try a unique driving experience. It's a no-brainer for a stag weekend in Edinburgh. Hovercrafts will get the blood pumping and the boys out of the pubs for a few hours.
Perfect for stag parties with a few different personalities to cater for, the sheer fun of the event will have even the most dedicated sport-sulker getting in on the action.
Stag Party Sessions Include:
Edinburgh offers A-class clay pigeon shooting for stag parties. Blast clays out of the sky with double-barrelled shotguns in the grounds of a huge stately home set within 6,500 acres of dramatic countryside. Located just 12 miles from Edinburgh city centre, this place is perfect for country sports.
After a safety briefing, it's straight into the action. This ain't spray and pray machine gun shooting. Clay pigeon shooting requires skill, timing, coordination and a cool head under pressure. Go head-to-head with your fellow stags for the sharp shooter title.
There can be few locations better suited to the gentleman's art of clay pigeon shooting than Edinburgh. The countryside beyond the city limits is stuffed with sprawling estates. You'll feel like a genuine Scottish laird (or an English royal on tour) every time you yell "pull!" For the full effect, make sure your stag do gets costumed up for the day. We're talking outdoor tweeds, shooting trousers and cravats. Oh, and flat caps, naturally. Good shot, old chap!
Professional, qualified instructors will show you the basics. In just one hour you'll be able to hold a gun without dislocating a shoulder, load cartridges, track a moving target and fire like a pro.
