Welcome to Linburn Scouts
Our membership of around 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?

Looking forward to exciting times ahead:
Later this month, Cubs, Scouts and Explorers will be heading to Summer Camp in the Brecon Beacons for an action-filled week of adventurous activities on and off the water.
August 20th will see our first-ever family Day when parents and young people can come togther to take part in many of the adventurous activities at Fordell - followed by our AGM and Presentations Event
There's another BASEcamp in September, including a number of exciting camp site activities.
We're hoping to get to Alton Towers later in the year with our Scouts and Explorers.
In November we have our Autum Indoor Weekend for Beavers and Cubs.
From November through to next March, we'll have our all-season camping challenge. Can any of our Scouts and Explorers complete a night under canvas every month until Spring 2023?
