Girlguiding Scotland gives girls and young women adventure, fantastic experiences and fun – all within a supportive girl-only environment. We offer something for all ages, from outdoor activities like kayaking to the opportunity to travel.

We want every girl to experience what guiding has to offer, and all our leaders are trained, supported and assessed to give your daughter a great guiding experience – safely.

Guiding in your area

You’ll find us in many communities in Scotland from the cities to the Highlands and Islands, helping to give girls a head start in life and encouraging them to be happy, self-confident and curious about the world they live in and the difference they make. We’ve got 3,500 units all over Scotland – take a look at what exciting things they’ve been up to by looking at guiding in your area.

Interested in joining us? Register your daughter or as a volunteer.

Open to all

We want every girl to be able to take part in guiding, no matter her background or individual circumstances. And we do everything we can to make sure she has a great guiding experience.

How your daughter can take part

As a member of Girlguiding Scotland, your daughter could do something amazing – from conquering her fears on the climbing wall to learning how she can save the planet. It’s a winning combination which she won’t find anywhere else. Discover what your daughter could get out of guiding, and how she can take part.

Give your time

As a parent or guardian you may be interested in supporting your child in her guiding activities. If you’d like to join the fun at your local unit there are a variety of ways to do this. Whether it’s a one-off visit to teach the girls how to bake the perfect cupcake or a regular slot as a unit helper, the time you give will really improve the lives of girls in your area. Find out how you can give your time to help girls grow.


If you are near Glasgow or Edinburgh you can pop into Girlguiding Scotland’s shops to purchase your uniform or visit our online shop. Each girl who visits one of Girlguiding Scotland’s shops to get their uniform will get an ‘I visited the Guide shop’ badge.
