Stag Party Activities for older people?
There are plenty of enjoyable stag party activities for older people, and it doesn't have to always be down the pub.
Walking or Hiking: There are no short of walking options in Scotland. Even around us in Speyside, there are a lot of choices. For easy flat walks, we recommend the Speyside Way. As it used to be an older railway line, it's easygoing. A more adventurous challenge is climbing Ben Rhinnes, which we can see in Mulben. Both are great options and with a bit of luck, the weather will be fortunate.
Whisky Tasting: We are in the heart of Whisky here in Speyside. There are about ten distilleries in a 5-mile radius around us. For stag parties, many of our guests choose a famous Whisky tasting in the morning and spend the afternoon with our activities at House of Mulben.
Birdwatching: Birdwatching is a peaceful and engaging outdoor activity. There are a number of smartphone apps today that can make the identification of birds so much easier. Locally to us in Speyside, there are great opportunities to see Capercaillie, Geese, Ducks and Ospreys.
Clay Pigeon Shooting: At House Of Mulben we use 20-bore shotguns for our guests. These have very little kick compared to the more popular 12-bore shotgun. 20-bores still pack a mighty punchy and can crack clay at 45+ yards. Older people can easily handle these guns, both men and women.
Golf: Within a 20-mile radius here in Mulben, there would be around a dozen golf courses. Each with their own style and skill level. Dufftown has huge gradients and is a challenging walk around. The best course is Moray Golf Club over in Lossiemouth. It's a great links course and has its similarities with St Andrews.
Fishing: Fishing can be a relaxing and enjoyable outdoor activity for older people. Whether it's freshwater or saltwater fishing, it allows individuals to spend time in nature, practice patience, and potentially catch a fish or two.
Outdoor Photography: Encourage older adults to explore their creative side through outdoor photography. There are many beautiful things to capture in Speyside. It's a hobby that combines exercise, artistic expression, and the opportunity to create some great printed things from your photos.
Remember, it's essential to consider an individual's abilities, interests, and any specific health considerations when suggesting outdoor activities for older people. Have fun.
