Scouts is the third section in the scouting family, and is typically seen as the original section.  Scouts are typically 10.5-14yrs old.

As an active scout troop, we get up to all sorts of exciting and adventurous activities, both in our regular meetings and on camps and visits.

We have 40 Scouts attending every Thursday. We meet at 7.30pm till 9.30pm. A night at Scouts consists of games, badge work, more games.

What do Scouts do?

Scouts are at the age where they can experience the true adventure that scouting has to offer – from fun projects in the meeting place to climbing, archery, raft building and many more! We aim to give scouts a wide range of experiences so they can learn some new skills by accident along the way.

Please note if your child joins the waiting/joining list before they are aged 6 they are likely to get a space. Joining after this age it is unlikely a space will come available as young people filter through to the older sections.

Weekly Programme

Who are the leaders?

Our leadership team is entirely made up of volunteers who enjoy running scout meetings and camps! All adult leaders have training and a PVG check, and there is always at least one adult who is first response qualified.

If you would like the opportunity to do something you’d never thought of doing, while having lots of fun and giving back to the community at the same time, please get in touch – we can always do with more leaders! You don’t have to be an expert in all-things-scouting – the only essential ingredient is wanting to have fun scouting! See the full group leadership and executive committee here.

Our Scout Leaders are:

Mark Furmage (Scout Leader)

Gary Patterson (Group Scout Leader)

Alex Ritchie (Assistant Scout Leader)

Joseph Beekman (Assistant Scout Leader)

Where do my Badges go?

Scouts have challenge badges, that work towards their Chief Scouts Gold badge, and over seventy activity badges that let them discover many new activities.  If your scout is awarded a badge, please sew it on their shirt as shown below:

The Scotland badge should be placed between the group name tape and country/area/region badges.

More information about scout badges can be found on the website.
