Money spent in Scotland stays in Scotland

Surpluses from our retail operations fund Girlguiding Scotland’s other activities including leader training and events for girls.

Visit our staffed shop in central Edinburgh, have a look at our online shop or phone in your order. We will handle your mail or online order and any exchanges speedily. Remember our returns policy for refunds or exchanges, supported by a receipt, remains 28 days.

Surpluses from volunteer-run depots provide similar support to guiding in your local area. Guiding in Scotland gets no direct financial benefit from parents buying uniforms via local school outfitters or John Lewis – and their prices can be up to 20 per cent higher than ours. Friendly, knowledgeable and helpful volunteers are on hand to help.

Do you know that your local Scottish Guide Shop can provide Guiding Uniform, resources and gifts to you, as a ‘Shop In A Box’!

It’s the perfect way to show uniform, badges, resources and gifts to girls and parents at your local unit meeting. Or if your are planning an event, training day or county meeting you can use this service to provide a stall of goods for sale. Your unit, district, division or county will receive 10% of the value of the sales from your ‘Shop In A Box’.

Registered goods

We can only sell registered ‘A’ goods such as interest and Promise badges to adult leaders. An active membership number must be provided when these are ordered online.

If we don’t already know you we may ask to see your membership card to check the number when buying these goods in the shops.

County commissioners, badge secretaries or advisers ordering registered ‘B’ goods for qualifications and awards and long service awards should contact the Edinburgh Guide shop. For Queen’s Guide or Chief Guide Challenge badges please get in touch.
