The cubs line up to mark the 100th anniversary

Deeside and District cubs recently met at the Braemar Gathering ground for a special camp to celebrate 100 years of the Cub Scout movement.

More than 90 youngsters from Drumoak, Maryculter, Torphins, Banchory and Braemar groups took part.

As well as celebrating the anniversary, the theme of the get-together was Scottish activities.

The cubs took part in a mini Highland games where they tossed cabers, threw hammers and took part in a highly- competitive tug-of-war.

Volunteers came to teach them skills like tying flies for fly fishing and playing the chanter.

The cubs also enjoyed curling, bowling at the local club and woodland orienteering.

The event finished around a roaring campfire with traditional songs and some new ones.
