What we do

Clyde Scouts runs an outdoor centre at Auchengillan which provides a focus for the provision of adventure based programme and development activities for young people in local Scout Groups. We are also very lucky to have two campsites: Avondyke & Coltswood, as well as access to Pinkston Watersports. 

The Glasgow Scout Shop supplies Scout uniforms, books and badges and outdoor clothing and equipment that supports the programme undertaken by our youth members as well as the local area. 

The Regional Commissioner is the lead volunteer in the Region and they are supported in their work by the Regional Team and a number of Committees.
