    Adults make Scouting happen!

Welcome to Highlands & Islands Region's website which will give you a flavour of some of the activities that are going on across our Region (we support Scout Groups across Highland, Western Isles and Orkney).

The site contains information and news about upcoming events and activities, resources for Groups and Districts and lots more info.

Through the adventure of Scouting, young people get to take risks in a safe environment, and have their first taste of responsibility. We give young people experiences they'll never forget. In Scouting, we provide over 200 activities from abseiling to zorbing. If we don't have an instructor who can help we can normally find someone who can. But Scouting isn't just about activities for their own sake. We encourage our young people to feel the buzz of the challenge and then reflect on what that means. Did they have fun? Do they feel more confident? Would they do it again?

All this is made possible by the efforts of more than 500 voluntary adult leaders. With award winning training and one-to-one support, we make sure that each one of our volunteers gets to make the best use of their skills and talents. It's something different from the norm, and that why a lot of people like it.' In fact, it's what's made us the largest co-educational youth Movement in the country.
