A messaged from Girlguiding Scotland…

It is with profound sadness that we at Girlguiding Scotland have learned of the death of our Patron, Her Majesty The Queen. Our deepest sympathies are with the Royal Family at this very sad time. You can see the full Girlguiding statement here.

In consultation with the organising team and after much careful consideration, we’ve made the extremely difficult decision to cancel Campa Caraidean as a mark of respect. We’re really sorry for any inconvenience this causes you if you were due to attend. If you have any questions please get in touch with
