About South East Scotland Scouts

Scouts provides young people aged 6-25 with the skills they need for school, college, university, the job interview, the important speech, the tricky challenge and the big dreams: the skills they need for life. All supported by an amazing team of adult volunteers. We can't deliver Scouting without them! No previous experience of Scouts is required to get involved. Are you ready to join our adventure?
