Skills for Life

It’s exciting being involved with us. We believe that through everyday adventure, young people regularly experience new challenges that enrich their lives and meet lifelong friends through Scouting.


Welcome to 1st Westhill

Based in South Aberdeenshire and part of the Gordon Scout District, we are one of the largest and most active Scout Groups in the area; every week over 180 young people aged 6-14 from Westhill and the surrounding area join us to experience everyday adventure and take part in our top quality Scouting programme.

The Group has grown steadily in all Sections over the last four years, following the efforts and hard work of our Leadership team, fully supportive Group Exec and our Section Leaders. We now have three beaver Colonies, Four Cub Packs and three Scout troops. We host an Explorer Scout Unit.

Our thriving and active Scout Group has a dedicated leadership team who produce exciting and dynamic programmes for young people of the area, teaching life skills as well as having plenty of fun along the way! We partake in regular meetings, camping trips and day activities.
