Lockdown didn’t stop the ninth Western Isles Guide and Scout Competition going ahead on Saturday May 30 … but this year it was an ONLINE instead of an OUTDOOR event.

Teams from Stornoway Guides, Laxdale Scouts and Girlguiding Harris worked their way round five virtual bases on Zoom using their fitness, knowledge, map skills, imagination and teamwork to collect points.

In the end the team from Girlguiding Harris edged out the 2019 winners, Stornoway Guides, to secure the Western Isles Guide and Scout Competition trophy for 2020.

Thanks to all our leaders without whom the event wouldn’t be possible.

Next year we hope to be back in the Castle Grounds in the sunshine!
