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.
Kirriemuir Camera Obscura – one of only three working cameras in Scotland – is housed in a purpose built turret room in the Barrie Pavilion on Kirrie Hill. It provides a fascinating glimpse of historis technology and stunning 360 degrees views of the surrounding countryside.
The Pavilion and Camera were gifted to the town by Sir J M Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan and author of many books, quite a few of which were set in and around Kirriemuir. The building was opened by him on 7th June 1930.
Friendly guides will explain how the equipment works and point out the various landmarks which can be see, The Camera Obscura works best on bright sunny days so there will be times when the view is not at its best due to weather.
Cafe Obscura, on the ground floor, offers teas, locally roasted coffee, snacks, cakes, cold drinks, ice creams etc.
There are outdoor games to use and kites for children of 9 to 90 to fly.
The Cafe and Camera are self funding and are managed and operated by the volunteers of Kirriemuir Regeneration Group. All profits are donated back into community projects.
The Cafe is dog and wheelchair friendly but the Camera Room is reached by a flight of stairs so is unsuitable for wheelchairs. Dogs are not permitted in the Camera Room.
There is no admission fee but donations are appreciated.
The Pavilion is normally open on Saturday, Sunday and Monday from Easter to October. Please check our website and Facebook page for opening times.

STRIDE organises and coordinates events aimed at bringing together both African people and other people in the local neighbourhoods in planning on things like local community engagement activities, gardening activities, helping young people with career choices, signposting Africans to other agencies for support with problems such as abuse, gender-based violence, mental health and other social/economic problems.
STRIDE predominantly works in Angus and Dundee city councils.
Social isolation and loneliness are major causes of mental health problems and other anti-social problems amongst inter-generational African people in Angus and Dundee city.
