Adventure and glamping boost for Netherurd

Netherurd, Scottish guiding’s home from home, is set to get a makeover which will include new adventure activities and ‘glamping’ style accommodation.

The move, agreed by Girlguiding Scotland’s Executive Committee earlier this month, will also see improvements to the Georgian house such as en suite bathrooms and building a new extended conservatory for functions and training sessions.

The investment is being made over the next 12 months in order to boost visits to the house from Girlguiding Scotland members for sleepovers, camps, meetings and adventure weekends. The charity is asking members to ‘explore Netherurd first’ when planning guiding activities or meet-ups.

It’s also aiming to attract external business to the house, in West Linton in the Borders, from organisations or individuals for team building days, functions, day trips and relaxing breaks.
