Welcome to Girlguiding Kincardine & Deeside

Please enjoy having a look about our website. Here are a few facts about us:


We are one of 38 counties that make up Girlguiding Scotland.

Our area starts in Portlethen and follows the coast down through Newtonhill, Stonehaven, Inverbervie and Johnshaven to St Cyrus in the south.

We then go inland to Mearns taking in the villages of Luthermuir, Laurencekirk and Auchenblae before heading to Fettercairn and crossing the Cairn O’Mount to Banchory.

We then travel along Deeside to Aboyne, passing through Ballater to Braemar and returning towards the coast via Tarland, Lumphanan, Torphins and Maryculter.



We have 8 Guiding Districts: Coastal North, Lower Deeside, Mid Deeside North, Mid Deeside South, Banchory, Mearns, Coastal South and Stonehaven, each one administered by a District Commissioner Team.

In our area we have approximately 1200 women and girls taking part in Guiding every week. Our girls take part in a huge selection of activities, learning essential life skills, having fun and making many friends along the way. We would like you to come and join us.
