Fairburn Scout Group - Fun with a Purpose

Welcome to Fairburn Scout Group. We are based in Marybank in Ross-Shire and we currently have sections for Beaver Scouts for children from 6 to 8 years of age and Cub Scouts for children from 8 to 10 1/2 years of age.

We now have a confirmed Assistant Scout Leader and are working on finding a Scout Leader so hopefully it won't be too long before the next section of Scouts is open to children aged 10 to age 14 years.

Our Beavers and Cubs come from the Strathconon area and from many local villages including including Marybank, Strathpeffer, Strathgarve, Little Scatwell/Strathconon and Contin.

Being a Beaver or Cub at Fairburn is all about fun with a purpose – helping members to fulfil their potential as individuals and become active members of society.

Waiting List

We are really pleased that the publicity for the Scout Group and the very successful events that have been held recently mean that the Cub section is currently full! After the summer holidays we have more places available for Beavers so if your child/ren are interested, please contact us now to have your place kept. Contact numbers available on the 'Leaders' page above.

The Scout section of the group is being prepared at the moment and we shall open after the summer holidays…no matter what!
Reliable volunteers will be welcomed and training given along the way so even if you have not been involved in the Scouting movement, we have all the help you could need with our friendly and helpful leaders. Please do not feel you have to sit behind a lot of worksheets/paperwork and learn all about protocals and legalisations…you learn this along the way!
The most enjoyable way of volunteering is to become involved through helping at the weekly meetings! That way you are seeing for yourself the difference you are making by helping the children learn and exceed their own expectations aswell as 'on the job' training so to speak. It is much easier to ask or watch how things are done! It's a very rewarding job with a particularly friendly and enthusastic team.
Sometimes we hear 'I don't have any skills I can share'! I disagree, everyone has something that they can share with the children, even people who do not enjoy the outdoors can sometimes help with cooking skills, other sports, knots, community work, arts and crafts, badges, administration, PR, organising days out or fundraisers. This and many others all contribute to this group succeeding in being relevant…so please, help make a difference and contact us now!

Thank you to all dedication and enthusiasm from our reliable volunteers who have joined the group.
