We are in the process of changing the Invertrossachs Campsite Booking system to one hosted by Online Scout Manager (OSM). We expect this to be up and running by January 1st 2024, after which all campsite bookings must be made through OSM. This will be a great improvement as groups will be able to see live availability, reserve and amend bookings instantly online. Non-Scouting groups will able to register with OSM.

All payments will require to be made online using a debit or credit card.  All bookings must also be made at least 7 days in advance.

This will only apply to the campsite initially. As before, all visitors to the site, whether for an evening visit for a couple of hours, or a summer camp, must use this system. Booking of Water Activities will still be carried out as previously, unitl a new system is developed.

In the interim, please make your campsite booking as you have done in the past. All bookings will be transferred to the OSM system prior to it going live.

Hi everyone.

We are pushing forward with a major programme of works and are appealing for some help from groups within the district. On this occasion, we are asking for a fixed number of volunteers to help with specific tasks, for instance, on the Saturday 25th February we are looking for;

Group 1 – 4 persons – to hand-mix concrete and lay slabs for a base for a new activity equipment store, and

Group 2 – 4/6 persons - to carry out works on the new cub obstacle course, and the new backwoods cooking site (Lochside site).

Duration – 5/6 hours, starting at 9.30 a.m.

A lot of work at Invertrossachs is too physical and potentially dangerous to be carried out by inexperienced young people so, on this occasion, only those over 18 please. Explorer Scouts, if wanting to assist with projects at Invertrossachs, should undertake these as a unit on a separate day/visit/camp.

Fi Baker, Assistant Cub Leader at the 1st Stirlingshire, has taken on the role of New Works Co-Ordinator at Invertrossachs, and is helping to organise and run this (and future) workdays.

Names to myself, or Fi, maximum 10 persons

Thanks, Colin Smith

Warden, Invertrossachs

Forth Region have updated their website and now have an information page about the adventurous activity permits.

If you are looking to find out more about what activities need permits, or want to find out more please check out the link here: https://frscouts.org.uk/Members/Adventurous-Activity-Permits


If you have any specific questions about activity permits in the district, feel free to email me directly: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

This year the number of individual bookings to use Invertrossachs has increased by over 50%, and will probably exceed 100 in number by the time the new season starts on 1st April 2023. Whilst we welcome the increase in usage of the facilities, this can make it quite difficult for our own groups to get the bookings they want. In recognising this, we are making a change to the booking arrangements this year.

Booking enquiries for the next camping season open up at the beginning of October. From 1st October for 1 month, we are going to restrict booking enquiries to groups from within Stirling and Trossachs District, plus 1 or 2 regular users from out with the district. From 1st November we will open up bookings to any interested parties.

Enquiries for summer camps of 4 or more days duration will be considered at any time.

So those of you who like to have things planned well in advance will now have a better chance of getting the weekend you want.

Can I remind you that everyone should follow the Booking Procedure as detailed on the website (Booking Information (stirlingandtrossachsdistrictscouts.org.uk). A Booking Application Form and Campsite Payment Form are required for all bookings, and the four digit Booking Reference should be used on all correspondence and payments.

If water activities are required, you must apply via the Water Activity Enquiry Form for every occasion, as it is this form that is used to book the equipment. If we do not receive a form, the boats may be booked out to another group.
