As some of you will already know, after 7 years in the post of Booking Secretary, Carla Wilson has stepped down from the role, but we have been very lucky in finding such an able replacement in Catherine Collington. Cath is already getting to grips with the booking procedures, and it has been something of a baptism of fire as she has had to deal with the start up of the centre for day use and then for camping. I'm sure you will find Cath every bit as helpful as Carla in dealing with your bookings and enquiries.
I would like to thank Carla for her tireless work over the years, for being our first point of contact for the site, and the quiet competance with which she dealt with the unusual and unexpected, as well as the mundane. I know that latterly she was finding it challenging, due to extra pressures at work caused by the Covid pandemic, and I am sure you will join with me in wishing Carla all the best.
We are also at this time carrying out a review of our booking process. An amended procedure will in place for next year, details of which will be uploaded to the Invertrossachs webpages in late November, and will include a new Booking Form, Payment Form, and Water Activity Enquiry Form.

Our District Commissioner, Jo Cookson, is very pleased to announce the following appointments within the District Team.
Congratulations to you all and good luck in your new roles! (and don't panic, none of them are giving up any of their existing roles within Groups or District just yet!)
A couple more roles will likely be announced shortly!
We have created a Water Sports Information Document to explain all things water based!
We are hoping this resource will be useful for those wanting to find out more about what is on offer and how to get involved and gain a permit.
A link to the document can be found HERE or in the Resources -> Water Activities -> Water Sports Information section of the website.
If you have any questions please get in touch with one of the water team.
The barrier will be locked from around 6.00 p.m. on a Friday until the Sunday evening. It will also be locked on Public Holidays.
Groups visiting Invertrossachs should follow the guidance below.
The important thing to remember is that the barrier should not be left open and unattended at any time.
On Mondays through to Fridays (public holidays excepted) there should be no restriction to access and you should leave the barrier as you find it.
It is hoped that with the installation of a permanaent barrier, the safety and security of the properties within the estate, including the scout centre, will be enhanced. Until such time, we will have to tolerate the present arrangement and try to manage our comings and goings so as to keep the residents satisfied.
