1st Forres Scout Group

Scout Hall.

Our Scout hall is located right in the center of Forres. Within 2 mins walk of the town center.

The hut has a separate kitchen fitted with fridge and cooker/oven. 

There is a male & female toilet. One of which is an accessible toilet. 

The is a free council car park to the rear of the hut and has ample parking.  

The hall can be booked by Scout Groups, Business and Charities.


The Container is perfect for small community meetings. 

It seats arround 8 people. 

Mini Bus. 

The 15-seat mini bus was delivered to us in 2020.

The group worked really hard to fundraise and we couldn't have done it without kind donations from local businesses and charitable trusts.

The bus is equipped with removable seats for wheelchair passengers or to increase luggage capacity when required.

The Mini Bus can be used by any Scout or Guide Groups from Forres.

The Bothy.

Moray Estates have gifted us access to Aitnoch Bothy on the Dava Moor.  

We were initially given access over 30 years ago and still hold regular camps there.

Some Bothy activities you'll try include cycling and night hikes.

During the quieter months we spend time improving the site for future use. 

The Bothy can be used by any Scout or Guide Groups.

Water Activities.

We are lucky to have Findhorn Bay so close and we make good use of it.  

We have a selection of dinghies, kayaks and canoes that we use throughout the year under supervision of qualified instructors.  

We love to invite other Scout, Guide and youth groups to take part in a beginners session.


The Explorers are also given the oppertunity to attend 'Cally (Water) Rally' where they can develop further skills and meet with other groups.
