Newbigging is Girlguiding Dundee’s Outdoor Centre. The house is a stone-built former school with a sheltered garden and adjoining spacious campsite plus three wigwams.

It is located in a quiet rural area about 7 miles south of Blairgowrie and 20 miles from the skiing and hill walking areas of Glenshee, with the Sidlaw Hills only 3 miles to the south.

The Holiday House, Campsite and Wigwams are ideal for all age groups.They are well equipped for camps, holidays, training events for indoor and outdoor pursuits, and even as a base for exploring further afield.

We have an Archery Range on site which can be booked as part of a camp or holiday, or as a standalone activity during a day out. All sessions are run by Girlguiding Dundee volunteers who are GNAS qualified instructors.
