The 87th Craigalmond Scout Group meets in the Scout Hut, Boswall Parkway in Granton on the north side of Edinburgh. We welcome new members aged 6 – 18 to be added to our waiting lists.
As Scouts, we believe in preparing young people with skills for life. We encourage our young people to do more, learn more and be more.
Each week, we give over 90 local young people* the opportunity to enjoy fun and adventure while developing the skills they need to succeed. We’re talking about teamwork, leadership and resilience – skills that have helped Scouts become everything from teachers and social workers to astronauts and Olympians.
*There are 465,000 young people in UK Scouting. There are over 150,000 adult volunteers in UK Scouting’.
Like all Scout Groups, we have a Committee consisting of parents, leaders and other supporters who look after the administration and fund-raising involved. Could you help too?
Or would you like to become a uniformed Leader?
Our AGM is on Monday 7th September at 7pm on ZOOM. Parents will be sent the link by email and it will be posted on the Facebook Group

Scouting is all about having fun, making friends and learning new skills. We aim to help young people reach their full potential as active members of the community who are self-reliant, caring, responsible and committed. Along the way we provide opportunities for adventure, fun and challenge.
Scouting is open to all young people, girls and boys, aged 6 to 25 of every faith and background. There are also plenty of opportunities for adults to become involved as Leaders, Assistants or Administrators.
There are different groups catering for the different levels of the programme in every area.
