As many of you will know, we have been at Invertrossachs for 50 years this year and the site has developed and improved over time. 

We now have a number of large scale projects in the pipeline and are looking for help to make them happen.

Please take a look at our Vision Document HERE to see what we are planning and the kind of things you could get involved with.

If you can help in any way with any of these projects, or just want to know a bit more, please email both Charlie and Colin ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and one of them will get back to you. 

Leaders, please feel free to share this with your parents too as many of them may have the skills and know-how that we are looking for!

Are you looking for a Nights Away permit assessment? There is an opportunity to have one at the Barrwood campsite on the first weekend in September. For more information and to register your interest, contact

Invertrossachs Scout Centre Management requires that you follow the guidance for accessing the site. Over recent weeks there have been occasions when:

  1. there has been a disregard of the arrangements for entering and leaving the Estate, with the barrier being left open and unattended, and
  2. a number of vehicles have been observed travelling well in excess of the Estate speed limit of 20 m.p.h.

This is causing unnecessary friction between the Estate, local residents and ourselves and if it continues, more extreme action may be required e.g., barring certain vehicles or drivers.

1 - Estate Barrier

  • On weekends and public holidays, the Estate Barrier just beyond the lodge is now liable to be locked – this is to prevent indiscriminate access by members of the general public.
  • Please ensure that ALL drivers who are likely to be visiting the site are given the combination number for the Estate Barrier padlock in advance.
  • The gate must not be left open and unattended.
  • A responsible adult is to attend the barrier at your peak arrival time, to identify and assist vehicles associated with your group entering and leaving the Estate. A similar arrangement is required for departure.
  • Parents are to be advised of these time slots. Anyone entering or leaving the Estate out with these time slots must ensure that the barrier is closed and padlocked behind them.

2 – Estate Road

This is a private, single-track road and is a very popular walking and cycling route. It is reckless and potentially dangerous to travel at speed along it, so the 20-mph speed limit that is in place makes perfect sense. Please advise drivers to keep to the speed limit.

Your co-operation in implementing the above will be appreciated.

Change of Dates for District Cub Events!

Please note there has been a change to the District Cub events this year.

The District camp at Barrwood in May has been postponed. This is due to a large number of our Leaders across the District being involved in both Scouts and Cubs and being unable to attend both events on the same weekend.

We have also moved the SPLOSH event back a weekend to the 18th and 19th June as the following weekend is the start of the summer holidays and we imagine that some Cubs (and a lot of Leaders!) may be ready for a break by then. 

Please update your diaries!

 

We are having to cancel this event as the Scout Hall building has just been sold and requires to be vacated next week. Apologies to anyone who was thinking of coming along.
