3-day adventure stag weekend with camping in bell tents

It’s not unusual for us to host large stag and hen weekends full of adventure, but last weekend was our biggest stag yet, with over 30 friends getting together to take part in the 3-day adventure near Llangollen.

Arriving on the Friday evening, at base camp, we provided evening games including archery and axe throwing to get things started, plus our legendary big welcome BBQ. Our tailor-made welcome evenings provided an opportunity for everyone to catch up, settle into their Bell Tents (home for the weekend) and relax into the celebrations.

For this legendary stag weekend the group chose white water rafting (6 per raft), canyoning and coasteering which we split across the two days.

4-day wilderness canoe adventure, paddle on the waters of either Loch Shiel, Loch Tay and Loch Awe. This canoeing adventure gives you wild and exhilarating days on the Loch, wild camping in stunning highland locations, eating great food and exploring some of Scotlands best distillery’s.

Day 1

After first meeting at the pickup point we will start the adventure with a visit to a local distillery, here we will take a tour a try a few drams. The next stop is the entry point for our canoes; we will first organise the equipment, pack the boats ready for departure. First days paddle to camp will be a short one focusing on getting used to tandem canoeing. The evening will be spent setting up camp, lighting the fire and cooking & eating dinner, with the usual evening activities of exploring the local area, sharing stories and sipping whisky to see us through the night.

Day 2

The morning start is consists of cooking breakfast, drinking coffee and breaking camping ready for the next leg of our journey. The day will be spent on the lake exploring and developing your canoe skills and techniques from paddle strokes, trim, sailing and navigation. Throughout the day will stop to explore the lakeside, try catching fish and generally see what the weather has in store for us. Once camp we will go through a similar routine as the first night, with the addition of learning to clean and cook fish over the fire. Each night there will be workshops on bush and survival skills with activities to play with throughout the evenings.

Day 3

The third day will be much like the previous, giving you a chance to lose yourself in the wilderness and have a full on an adventure with your friends. You will have time to hone your skills on the water, and while at camp, feeding on the years of experience our staff have gained to guide and teach you all the way.

Day 4

The last day you be left sad to be heading home however likely looking forward to a shower. Once we have broken camp, we aim to be back at the start point driving away by noon. You then have the option of heading to another local distillery to pick up a souvenir, and even spending one last night in a local tavern sharing stories of your trip and dancing the night away to a local Kaley. However, heading home is always an option you decide.
