The 1st Falkirk Beaver Scout Colony celebrated not one, but three, Chief Scout’s Bronze awards towards the end of last year. This is the highest award a Beaver can earn. It involves a range of team work but also a huge amount of individual work too.
(L to R; Marnie Hughes, Eden Krykant and Cameron Walkinshaw pictured here) have chosen their own badges to work on and driven completion as part of the award. This a fantastic achievement and Leaders Lindsay and Chloe are very proud.
We are always looking for volunteers to make 1st Falkirk Scouting happen. If you’re interested please contact

The peace of the Carron Reservoir was shattered recently as the 51st Dennyloanhead Beaver Scouts, accompanied by some brave parents enjoyed a welly-walk to earn their ‘Hike and Explore’ badges and to work off some early Christmas excitement. We really had fun enjoying the views, exploring nature and making dens in the woods, before returning to the picnic area for hot chocolate made on the Trangia gas stoves. The Beavers are looking forward to many more outdoor adventures in 2024 as we work towards our Scouts “Outdoor in 24” challenge award. The beavers meet at the Archie Russell Community Centre on a Monday evening.

A colony of beavers from the 27th Bonnybridge spent their meeting looking at the stars.
The youngsters went to the Stirling Highland Hotel Observatory and were able to look through the 130-year-old reflecting telescope. 
The beavers were split into two groups and each learned about the planets before walking up the 90 steps to the observatory.
As well as looking at the stars and planets, the young people were also able to see the Wallace Monument, although it was upside down.
The Stirling Highland Hotel was the former High School. Members of the Stirling Astronomical Society hold evening classes that run each year from October to March.

The Beavers and Cubs of the 1st Falkirk Scout Group had a joint trip to the Panto this year! Along with some of the Antonine Explorer Scout Unit helping out as Young Leaders, forty-five of the youngsters enjoyed ‘Sinbad’ at the Dobbie Hall, Larbert.  The photograph shows the young members all excitedly waiting for ‘curtain up’ on the performance, by the Larbert Musical Theatre Group.  The show had all the classic lines, and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
The Group meet at the Rosehall in Falkirk and are always looking for new helpers. Contact for info.

Scouting is all about giving young people the Skills for Life, and so members from the 62nd Larbert recently had the opportunity to learn some new skills. They visited Fordell Firs for a weekend of adventurous activities. For some, this was their first night away from home which was a challenge, then there were the activities. Taking part in challenging activities gets the adrenalin flowing, so doing Abseiling, Climbing, Caving, Crate Climbing or Archery for the first time, proved exciting for these youngsters. Overcoming fear or apprehension, working with others and having fun without gadgetry was a fantastic learning experience.
