Whether you’re a bride looking for alternative hen party ideas, are a Maid of Honour responsible for planning a fun-filled weekend for your BFF, or you’re trying to plan a memorable experience for a large group, Scotland has an unrivalled range of experiences guaranteed to impress your bride tribe.

Explore some of our top picks for 2024 and get inspired to throw a bridal bash to remember!

Luxury spa break

If a day of pampering sounds like bliss to you, a spa hen day could be the perfect pre-wedding activity. Great for small groups, a spa break with friends will allow you to unwind and enjoy luxury treatments in soothing surroundings ahead of the big day.

Why not include an elegant afternoon tea for the ultimate day of decadence? It’ll be a treat you and your friends will remember and will put you all in a zen mood ahead of wedding preparations.

From the Kimpton Blythswood Square in Glasgow to Lochside House Hotel Spa in Ayrshire, there are plenty of options to suit your party and packages for a range of budgets.


Elegant karaoke

Guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser, karaoke and cocktails are always fun at hen parties! Classic for a reason, gather your friends and family and enjoy a sing-along while you sip on your favourite tipple.

The Corinthian in Glasgow offers room rentals for hen parties and will give your ‘do a stylish and sophisticated backdrop. The ideal private setting to party the night away, this is ideal for karaoke, cocktails, and fun hen party games like the classic ‘Mr & Mrs’.


Get a groove on

If your bride loves to dance, why not get the whole group involved in a fun dance class? There are plenty on offer throughout Scotland and you don’t need to be a dancing queen to take part. From hip hop and cheer to salsa and more, this fun-filled activity will put a smile on faces and get you all in the party mood.

Why not take it up a notch and don funky dance outfits? Match them to the wedding colours or go retro and have fun with 80s style legwarmers and leotards.


Countryside escape

Hen parties don’t need to be wild, and in fact, slow weekends with friends and family are sometimes the perfect way to celebrate upcoming nuptials. One of our favourite spots to enjoy a rural getaway with friends is the newly renovated Ballintaggart Farm. With options that can sleep up to 14 guests, this luxury farmhouse property is a fantastic choice for bride tribes seeking a quiet escape and will leave you all feeling rested and restored.


Gin masterclass

Scotland is famed for its distilleries so why not make the most of them and enjoy a tour or gin masterclass with your group? From city centre to coastal locations, you’re never far from a distillery in Scotland, and if you and your friends are gin connoisseurs, you’ll love trying new varieties and learning about the spirit. Let the fun be-GIN!
