New Cumnock Cubs, Scouts and Explorer Scouts had an educational weekend at Wanlockhead Outdoor Centre.

The group learned how the lead mines operated and took a visit 130 metres below ground. They also visited the miners’ cottages and had a go at panning for gold.

Iain Burgoyne, Group Scout Leader, said: “A great weekend was had by all. A huge thanks to New Cumnock Wind Farm’s Grant’s committee for their generous help towards the costs.”
