Edinburgh County Archives

We have many items covering many decades of Guiding in Edinburgh such as uniforms, badges, books and scrapbooks.

We are always happy to accept donations of Guiding memorabilia to add to our collection and we would be really grateful to receive any of the current badges for Brownies and Guides that have been around since 2000, when the big badge change took place, as we are very short of these.

We are hoping to make our archives more accessible and user friendly but this will, of course, take time. If you have any items you wish to donate, please contact the Office.

Girls take what they do in guiding with them as they grow up. Everything from working in a team, to taking the lead, to speaking out on issues they care about. It helps them develop the skills and confidence to become the young women they want to be. ’
