183rd Scouts tested out the new bothy at Auchengillan this weekend. These bothies will be a great resource for patrol camps, expedition challanges and other small group activities.

Once again, the 183rd Scouts hold the Camping Competition trophy for the Great Western district. Well done to everyone who put themselves forward, the next challenge is the zonal competition!
