Our demographic covers the Local Authority Areas of Angus, Dundee, Fife and Perth & Kinross. We have 6,257 youngsters enjoying Scouting across the Region, ably assisted by 2,106 Adult volunteers.
We are the third-largest of the eight Regions in Scotland, just behind Clyde and South-East Scotland.
We have ten local Districts that are responsible for supporting the 370 Sections that deliver Scouting locally. Links to these ten Districts (Arbroath & Montrose, Dundee, Dunfermline, Glenrothes & Levenmouth, Kirkcaldy, North Angus, North-East Fife, Perth & Kinross, Rosyth and South Angus) are given on the Districts Section of this website so if you need to contact one of them please use the contact information provided there.
The Districts are responsible for supporting the Progressive Training Scheme that all our young people follow and which links well with the Scottish Government’s Curriculum for Excellence programme.
Our Badges and Awards encourage Successful Learning; our focus on the outdoors and residential experiences encourages Confident Individuals; our youth involvement policy encourages Effective Contributors; and our superb Community Impact projects develop Responsible Citizens.
Unfortunately, we have a lack of willing adult volunteers and as a result we have over 500 youngsters on Waiting Lists, desperate to join their friends in the adventures that we provide, but who are unable to do so.
We are fully committed to flexible volunteering, so whatever little time that you have or skills that you can offer, we’ll be delighted to make use of them.
Please use the JOIN tab on this website to express your interest in becoming involved.
The Regional Team are responsible for supporting Districts with some of the specialist functions – Adult Training; Adventurous Activities, Communications; Development; Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, International; and Youth Involvement. Much of their role is in sharing best practice and providing guidance and advice based on their experience.
We have a Closed Facebook Group that all adults with roles within the Region are encouraged to be members of and we use it to share ideas and advertise opportunities or resources that would benefit Scouting locally.
Life-changing adventure and skills for life is what Scouting is all about. Scouting helps young people acquire practical, character and employability skills including:
These are the Skills that Parents (and Employers) consider it’s important for young people to gain.
We know that those who are members of Scouting locally are gaining these skills and that we are contributing to their personal development, but we would like to be able to offer Scouting to more young people across East Scotland in the years ahead.
Scouting is a part of our communities, not apart from it and each year contributes substantially to local charities and to local environmental projects and you can read more about this great work in regular newsletters and our Annual Reviews.
If you are looking to contact Scouting, but are unsure of the most appropriate person to approach, please use this website and the Regional Team will endeavour to identify who can help you.
Welcome to the Camera Obscura on Kirriemuir Hill.
Kirriemuir Camera Obscura – one of only four in Scotland – is housed in a purpose-designed turret room in the Barrie Pavilion on Kirrie Hill. It provides a fascinating glimpse of historic technology and striking views of the surrounding countryside.
Kirriemuir Camera Obscura was gifted to the town by Sir J M Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan, along with the cricket pavilion in which it is situated and was opened by the author on 7th June 1930
One of only four in Scotland, Kirriemuir Camera Obscura boasts stunning views of the surrounding countryside. Friendly guides are there to explain how the equipment works and the various landmarks which can be viewed.
The Camera Obscura works best on bright sunny days so there will be times when the view will not be at its best due to weather conditions. At these times a DVD will be available to view while you enjoy a tea or coffee in Cafe Obscura.
The Camera Obscura , is completely self- funding and is entirely managed and staffed by Kirriemuir Regeneration Group volunteers.
There is no admission charge but donations towards upkeep are appreciated.
