The Scout Group runs a 2011 16-seater high roof Ford Transit minibus and it is available for use by other Scout Groups and local Community Organisations. We gratefully acknowledge the support of the following: Awards for All Scotland, People's Postcode Lottery, Scottish Scouts Development Fund and The Leslie Sell Charitable Trust.
The minibus is fitted with a digital tachograph (for travelling abroad or towing heavy trailers) and a towbar. We have a double-axle box trailer for hire and full breakdown cover in case of any difficulties. A fuel card is kept on the bus. .
You require a Small Bus Permit which enables you to charge a fee to cover transport costs. For Scout Groups, application forms can be downloaded from Scoutbase and permits cost £5 for five years. Other organisations can obtain a permit at a cost of £11 by going onto the Department of Transport website.
You can check availability for the coming year in the calendar below.
