As some of you will have experienced, access to the Estate at weekends has been disrupted during the last year, with the residents having to padlock the barrier at weekends. Day trippers, visitors and random campers have been ignoring the Private Road and No Access signs and have caused grief, disruption and aggravation to the residents, leaving them little choice but to close the barrier. The residents are now looking to install a more permanent, electrically operated, barrier, so it looks like this feature is here to stay. It will cause some inconvenience to those visiting the campsite as it will require that everyone, from parents through to leaders and helpers, will need to be notified in advance of the code number, (and yes, it will be yet another code number). However, it is hoped that with the introduction of this measure, security and safety of the camp site will be enhanced.

Carla, the Booking Secretary, will issue the code number upon receipt of bookings, We have been informed that, at the moment, the barrier will only be locked at weekends and public holidays, but I would advise that groups coming to Invertrossachs outwith these times also should still share the code with anyone likely to need access.

On Monday 26th April, provided that the Government lifts the restrictions on travel within Scotland, then we will be lifting the restriction on scouts from out with the District (assuming Scouts Scotland lifts its restrictions).

Currently, with only day-visits allowed, our current procedure of having at least 24 hours between groups to allow for checking and cleaning the premises, is a bit restrictive. In order to maximise the occupancy of the site on Saturdays and Sundays, members of the Service Team will undertake this check and clean on a Saturday evening so that it will allow one group to book the centre for a Saturday and another for the Sunday. Groups booking on a Saturday will require to vacate the premises by 19.00.

This will be in place from now until the end of June and applies to Saturday evenings only. The 24hr rule applies at all other times and until further notice. 


With great sadness we inform you that our much loved District Commissioner Alasdair Garbett passed away early this morning.

He passed away peacefully and on his own terms.


Alasdair was the kindest, friendliest, supportive, dedicated, loving and gentlest person and will be sorely missed by everybody he knew.

The world has lost a great person today.


Please join us in sending all your love, prayers, well wishes, thoughts etc. to Jo, Mia and family during these difficult times.

New ADC Cubs Appointed


With great pleasure we would like to announce the appointment of Kevin Simpson as the new ADC Cubs for Stirling and Trossachs District.


Kevin has a long history in Scouts being a Cub and Scout in Gourock when younger.

For the last years Kevin led a Cub Pack and Den in Basel, Switzerland before moving back to Scotland.


One of Kevin's youngest has joined 11th Bridge of Allan which gave him the opportunity to return back to Scouts.


Please join me in welcoming Kevin to Stirling and Trossachs District and we hope that we will be able to see you for real in the near future.


Kevin can be reached on: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
