Nothing is more perfect than a stag weekend with your best mates

There are so many great things to do on a stag weekend, including clay pigeon shooting, Coasteering, Day at the races, and swimming. Although extreme activity can be great fun, it's definitely a good idea to have a chat with the stag in advance, just to get a sense of what he'd like to do.

Not all of these are available in Stornoway so you may want to consider other locations. Girls, booze and more girls - that's the secret to a great stag


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

And then it's time to get the boys heads ready for the fun that's going to follow. Traditionally the stag would be paraded around a selection of local pubs and the best bars, followed by a small amount of food and a then on to a night club.

But of course there other options from taking in a little bit of comedy, sitting down and actually eating a decent meal (!!!) and of course the almost compulsory strip club.

The most dangerous food a man can eat is wedding cake

TOP STAG WEEKEND TIPS

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

STAG DO HINTS


If you're organising quite a few people, and you're sensibly planning well in advance, it can be hard to get firm commitments from people. It's a really good idea to give an estimation of costs upfront. If the weekend is going to cost a fair bit, you need to know whether you'll end up excluding some people. And if you are getting the guests to make their own bookings (flight, hotel, etc) then make sure you keep reminding them to get on with it.

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 Stornoway!


There's no end of great fun to be had on a Stornoway 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 Stornoway.

BEST MAN ADVICE


It doesn't matter if you want a quieter and more refined evening or a big big big night out with everyone you've ever met in Stornoway with a no-holds-barred attitude to everything fun you can think of, maybe you now have some fuel for the ideas.

If you're thinking of a little wilder experience you might want to try places like Talin, Budapest or Prague - they have lots to offer and are pretty good value.

Oh, and one more thing. Make sure you take care of the groom-to-be.
