Stag Nights and Weekends in Galloway

The last chance to party before the big day

GALLOWAY WEEKENDS

It's now pretty common for a Galloway stag party to last for more than one evening, hence the increase of stag weekends. It seems as if the event gets longer and longer with every new generation! And we've seen more and more companies enter the stag weekend market, focused on making life easier for the best man . But obviously they will charge a premium for arranging it all.

STAG WEEKEND IDEAS

Since you're on our site we assume you need to think about the stag weekend. That's going to include everything from setting the date and location, organising the activities and entertainment, and of course keeping the groom somewhere between sober and hammered. Our site will help you think through the weekend and give you tips on all the things to think about for the Galloway stag do.

The key ingredients are the stag, best man, alcohol, fun and some girls

There are so many great things to do on a stag weekend, including a Boat party, Bobsleigh, Rock climbing, Skiing and roller-skating. Sometimes the best man just likes to organise the activity alone, and create a huge surprise for everyone, but we recommend involving the whole group, if for nothing more than ensuring people bring the right clothing!

Not all of these are available in Galloway so you may want to consider other locations. Marriage is a wonderful institution, but who wants to live in an institution?


Get ready for a great Galloway stag weekend, or at least a brilliant night!

The fun should absolutely not stop after the day activities, those are just the warm up act! It's a very long tradition to get the stag completely hammered, but please make sure you drink responsibly - no-one likes to throw up and accidents can happen when there's too much booze on the go.

Other ideas include visiting a comedy club, and of course in most major cities you can now also find a strip club - and they are often able to set up special moments for the stag!

TOP STAG WEEKEND TIPS

Here are some top tips for planning and running your Galloway stag weekend or stag party.

STAG DO HINTS


Picking the date. Its obviously essential that the groom is available, but also take a look at the outside world. Is there a major sporting event happening that some of the guests will really want to see? This may be a good thing of course - a bunch of mates crowded round the TV with a few beers, watching the FA Cup Final can be a great laugh and focus for the weekend. And of course, make sure that there's enough time between stag and wedding for your best friend to recover!

And please please please make sure that you and the other guests know that it's entirely inappropriate to talk about the specifics of the stag at any point during the wedding, even if you're certain no-one else is listening.

TRAVELLING STAG


It wasn't long ago that a stag weekend outside of the UK was seen as incredibly unusual, but with the arrival of cheap international flights (as well as the Eurostar) it's almost normal.  And there are certainly some unusual stag weekends possible, further away than Galloway!


If you plan well, then the groom should have an absolutely fun-filled Galloway stag weekend including a few quick and easy games to play along the way (alongside a few standard drinking games), good ideas for fancy dress and of course some embarrassing stories - all important factors for your great stag break in Galloway.
