Welcome to Linburn Scouts
Our membership of more than 100 children and young people come from all over Dunfermline but particularly Abbeyview and the South East area of the town.
Our story, so far ...
Linburn Scouts started in 1965, meeting in a variety of venues until moving to our own Scout Hall premises on Linburn Road in 1972. During those years, many hundreds of youngsters have enjoyed some great Scouting, but we outgrew this site and needed to find something much more suitable for a busy Scout Group.
The former clinic premises in Abbeyview came on the market at the end of 2017. Using funds built up by the Group over the previous 10 years we were able to move quickly and make a bid for the building. This was successful and after considerable refurbishment, we moved in during October 2018.
We are one of the busiest Scout Groups in the local area. Our Sections meet almost every week and average around 47 meetings each year. We have lots of extra activities, trips and camps.
We own our Scout Centre building and we have a large stock of outdoor activity and camping equipment.
Although we do not own our own minibus at present, we have access to range of Scout-owned vehicles which we use frequently for trips and activities.
We've achieved a lot since 1965. Why not have a look at some of our most significant highlights and achievements in the gallery below?

Once again, our young people are starting to meet up outdoors and take part in the activities they love.
With the proper precautions in place they've been hiking, tent-pitching, fire-lighting, exploring the local woods and taking part in a whole range of exciting activities at Scout Adventures, Fordell Firs.

With proper precautions and procedures in place, we're now able to meet indoors. We prefer the great outdoors, but this is great because Scottish weather doesn't always co-operate with outdoor activities!
Things may not be completely normal, but we're getting there.
