More than 1500 scouts from across the UK have taken part in 34th Blair Atholl International Jamborette —the only scout camp of its kind in the world.

Over 20 countries, including Zambia, Gibraltar, Spain, Hong Kong and Iceland will link up with scouts from Scotland at the ten day biennial camp. Held in the grounds of Blair Castle, this is the biggest jamborette to date with 77 joint patrols and over 450 volunteer leaders.

Blair Atholl is special in that every district in Scotland is represented and scouts camp in mixed-country leaderless patrols.

Highlighting the camp's history is the attendance of a family of three generations of Gibraltar Scouts. John Chincotta first attended Blair Atholl in 1946. He is returning to the camp with his son Javier who attended in 1982 and his grandson, Louis, here for the first time.
