Aberdeen

Stag parties in AberdeenGlasgow and Edinburgh have long been favourites with stag parties looking for a good time in Scotland. However, Aberdeen is another Scottish city that boasts a whole lot for stag parties but is often overlooked.

Beautiful countryside which allows for many exciting pursuits and plenty of city centre watering holes make Aberdeen a great destination for a stag weekend in Europe.

Madrid

Forget Barcelona for your stag weekend and give Madrid a shot instead. After all, where else can you be skiing one day and then running with bulls the next?

There’s also the prospect of getting to see one of the most iconic football teams of all time in action at their home ground the Bernabéu Stadium.
