Welcome to the online home of the 17th West Lothian Scout Group.

The 17th West Lothian Scout group is based at the Canon Hoban Hall in Broxburn, West Lothian.

We welcome all Young People to join in one of our 4 sections - Beavers (6-8 years), Cubs (8-10½ years), Scouts (10½-14 years) and our associated Explorer Unit the BRUW Sett (14-18 years).

We are also always on the lookout for adult volunteers to join in and help with our sections or the group as a whole.


For a period of time due to the coronavirus all face to face Scouting activities stopped. We are now working to get back face to face, based on the latest guidance from the Scouts and the Government.

Some sections will be continuing on Scouting at Home with our virtual activities but others will be planning how and when to get back to face to face. More information will be provided via email about what your section is planning.
