SCOUTING’S 14th Jamboree on the Trail (JOTT) took place on Saturday and South Angus Cubs held their event around the village of Newtyle.

The aim of the hike is for the World Scout Movement to hike together in the same direction; towards a better future through Scouting. Cubs, leaders and parents explored the footpaths on the disused railway lines around Newtyle and then scaled Kinpurney Hill.

At the top is a viewfinder identifying the prominent features that can be seen from the vantage point and as it was a clear day many of the Munroes to the east and north were visible.

The cubs from Carnoustie, Monifieth, Newbigging, Muirhead and Newtyle were all awarded their commemorative JOTT badge back at the Newtyle park. Pictured are the 47 cubs at the old observatory on top of Kinpurney Hill. Beth Christie, of the Newtyle pack, won the observation quiz along the trail.
