Janice Brown, a Leader with the 1st Wetheral Brownies, added: “Our Brownies and volunteers all enjoyed their adventure to Scotland and we left with so many happy memories.

“Netherurd was a fantastic venue for our adventure. Our accommodation was beautiful and spacious and the on-site activities made for an action-packed weekend. Our girls really enjoyed trying out zip-wiring, high ropes, canoeing and zorbing.
