Rainbows, Brownies and Guides

Every girl and young woman who wants to have adventures, learn, laugh and make friends for life, is welcome to join in the fun of Girlguiding.

We run, slide, climb, row, walk, paddle, skip and whizz our way through challenging activities. We laugh all the way and encourage each other to keep on going, ignore the mud on our faces, and never mind which one of us capsizes the canoe or stumbles on the slack line.

From camping abroad and canoeing to getting stuck into our amazing new programme and partying at the unmissable Tartan Gig, there’s something for every girl to get excited about.

Guiding is divided into four sections:

Each section follows its own specific programme which is tailored to the needs of today’s girl. The programme is up to date and relevant and it allows girls to be challenged and enjoy activities that they may not otherwise get the chance to do eg. abseiling, climbing, bungee trampolining, international opportunities and community service.
