Midlothian District covers the local authority area of Midlothian Council. It is responsible for the Scout Groups (each of which includes Beavers, Cubs and Scouts) and Explorer Units in the District.

The District Commissioner is Richard Fairbairn and Deputy District Commissioner is Callum Anderson.

Locally there are 8 Scout Groups, plus one Leader Unit and Network Scouts. We provide Scouting for 463 young people, but we have (as at the last Census 2022) 210 young people on our waiting lists. We only have 109 adult volunteers to help. The more adults that volunteer, the more sections and groups we can open, the more young people can join. If you would like to find out more about volunteering please do email dc@midlothianscouts.org.uk or link via their facebook page.
