New bothy at Auchengillan

Auchengillan bothy

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. 

Scouts regain district camping trophy


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!

We have now held the trophy continuously for 20 years – here is the team photo from 1997 – see anyone you know?
