Ladenford Den - the Girlguiding Angus County campsite.

Ladenford Den offers a great opportunity to experience the outdoors in a beautiful setting within Angus. 

Ladenford Den is open!!

We are delighted to announce that Ladenford Den campsite is open for units to hold outdoor meetings. 

As face to face meetings outdoors are now allowed, why not bring your unit to Ladenford for a meeting and make use of the woods/grounds for a session of outdoor fun?

Session times will be morning (10am to 1pm) or afternoon (2pm to 5pm) or evening (6pm to 9pm) and there will be no hire charge to units from Angus.  If you use electricity for heating the hall, we would ask that you pay for that.  Units are welcome to book more than one session and spend the whole day there if they wish.  The kitchen will remain closed as will the resources cupboard, but the sports equipment can be used and cleaned after use.  Users will be expected to clean all surfaces after the hire and there will be a cleaning check list in place to help with this.  All cleaning materials, hand sanitiser and bin bags will be provided. 

Units who are planning face to face meetings, will be required to complete their own risk assessment which needs approval by their District Commissioner, as well as the usual consent forms for the girls. 

To book a session at Ladenford please fill out the booking form and send it to
