Campfires have been burning, marshmallows toasting and lots of happy smiling faces running around (and that’s just the leaders!)

In September, we reopened our grounds so groups could come and enjoy Bonaly while being Covid secure, each group is allocated their own zone and toilet facility.

In October our Yellow phase risk assessments (indoors and outdoors) were approved, meaning we can now have groups of up to 30 including leaders, and we can offer the use of indoor space in the Baronial Hall, The Chalet and Forth Lodge for day visits.

We have already had visits from Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers. They have been pioneering, shelter building, playing wide games, making natural sculptures, taking part in team challenges and building lots of fires.

Halloween saw witches, zombies, vampires and all manner of scary creatures descend on Bonaly and great fun was had by all.

November is looking very busy but there are still some spaces available, if you would like to visit us just email an enquiry to or

It’s great to see Scouting back at Bonaly Scout Centre.
