As they soaked up the sights – and the ale – on their trip, Sam also seemed to take inspiration from the Scottish locals with his attire, donning a ginger wig and kilt for the night out on the town.

In one snap it seems the beer was already in full flow from the early hours, as Alan shared a glimpse of his pint with the caption ‘Morning.’

Another post pokes fun at Sam’s wife-to-be and her chosen profession, as he can be seen holding a sign that says ‘I hate yoga.’

Alan also posted a hilarious snap of trays of ale and beer for Sam’s wedding party, which also included co-star Colson Smith – who plays Craig Tinker.

And just hours after arriving it seemed Sam was moulding into the Scottish locals, as he dressed up in a ginger wig and tartan kilt, as Alan laughed hysterically at him.

With the stag party also soaking up the sights at Edinburgh Castle, another snap also saw the crew larking about in a ball pit, with fellow Corrie legend Andrew Whyment also in attendance. 

Sam previously admitted that he couldn’t wait to marry Briony, despite their young age. 

He told OK! magazine: ‘I’ve always felt old before my time – I’ve been working since I was about five! We’ve also been together for a long time so it just feels right and I don’t feel like I want to wait.

Great time: As well as Sam and Alan, there were several other Coronation Street favourites in attendance for the partying break

‘There’s so much to plan, so we have ‘wedding hour’ when we put aside one evening a week to discuss it, because otherwise we’d be constantly talking about.’

Meanwhile Briony gushed: ‘I was never going to say no! Getting engaged was the best day of our lives, it was bonkers.’

In June 2017 Sam got down on one knee when he and Briony were attending his golf club’s annual dinner, which he hosted with Alan Halsall and Andy Whyment.

Taking his then-girlfriend on stage, Sam got down on one knee and presented her with the ring, with the couple both sharing the same snap of the romantic moment on social media.

Overcome with emotion, she teamed the shots with a besotted caption, which read: ‘After sharing over 5 years together, 4 Al, Andy and Sam golf days, and 3 doggies, 2 hearts have now become 1 as Sam and I are…ENGAGED!! (How is it possible I can even say that out loud?!)

‘Sam got down on one knee last night at his annual golf do and proposed in front of 250 people and my heart could burst with happiness!! (When did I get so lucky?!).

Clearly still in shock at the event, she finished the sweet story by adding: ‘I can’t wait to marry my whole world but until then, I’m just floating in this bliss called love. I love you @samaston93 (sic).’
