Edinburgh is one of the few places in the UK where stag parties can try canyoning. If the groom likes his sports on the extreme side, a day of jumping, swimming, scrambling, climbing and abseiling is just what the stag doctor ordered.
A proper Indiana Jones-style adventure, canyoning requires balls of steel. This is a full-on, take a deep breath and go for it challenge. You'll be jumping into plunge pools from progressively higher rock platforms, sliding down natural water flumes, swimming and scrambling. The adrenaline rush will have you bouncing off the walls!
Emerge buzzing with an amazing sense of achievement and satisfaction. If you want a real challenge on a stag weekend in Edinburgh, canyoning will definitely do the trick. Come on! How often do you get the chance to conquer some of Mother Nature's toughest terrain?
Bring swimming stuff and a towel and trainers you don't mind getting wet. When you're done, whack on a big knitted jumper (you are in Edinburgh, it'd be rude not to) and warm the cockles of your stag party with a shot of fine single malt. It's Man Stuff 101.
