Stag do photos at Rookin House, Cumbria

As well as being invited to Smiv's stag weekend at Rookin House, Troutbeck, Cumbria, I decided to take the opportunity to document the weekend in photographs.
The venue is pretty amazing, in a beautiful location, and is geared up very much to accommodating hen and stag parties, as well as mixed group activity breaks.
Our weekend was expertly organised by one particular member of the group, and worked out very reasonably per person, with food and a takeaway included. 
Our choice of activities was go-karting, clay pigeon shooting and paint balling. I was able to take photos of the first two, but was too involved in the paint balling to get any pics. 
The weekend was nicely rounded off with the option of mountain biking or a walk in Whinlatter Forest, meeting up for a meal in the Coledale Inn as a finale. The location and food were amazing.
Here is a selection of the photos I took. For a larger selection please have a look at my Facebook business page, CLICK HERE.

Beautiful Cumbria countryside. Peace about to be shattered.
  Starry, starry night...
 Three PS3's lead to lots of gaming.

 The bride-to-be's father meets the groom-to-be's work mates. #onpins.
 That's some serious breakfasting...
 That was some serious consumption (in addition to the cask of ale, see below).
 There's something not quite right about this sausage..... first prank of the weekend.
 A subtle lacing of naga chilli (over 1 million on the Scoville scale) just starts to register.

 Alan, a legend in his own lifetime. Top guy, who helped make it a right laugh.

 That's not the chapstick!

 Lots of fun was had by all:

 Indoor karting on a surface of horse manure. Don't get too close behind, or just stay in front.

 Stag, shooting...

 Suitable supplies:
 Who needs a glass?
 Stag's father, brought a box of Cuban cigars. 
 Three PS3's made for some serious late night/early morning gaming.
 Sunrise on the Sunday:
 Home for the weekend:
 Off to Whinlatter forest for some serious (?) biking.
 Stag biker:
 The view from the top. Worth the walk.
 The walkers (me in blue).
