The campsite is owned, maintained and operated by the

Barrwood Trust

in support of Scouting.


The Reservoir

There has been a reservoir in the Barrwood since before it was first used by Scouts. Unfortunately the water is no longer considered to be fit for drinking and consequently it can’t be used for swimming either. However, it is possible to use it for Canoe Training or Raft Building.


There are now guidelines for the use of the reservoir which can be viewed or downloaded by right-clicking on the link “Guidelines for use of the Reservoir”.
If you wish to have exclusive use of the Reservoir this can be booked using the usual Booking Form which will attract a booking fee.

2018 Update

We are currently building a store next to the reservoir to locate equipment next to the facility. This equipment is the property of Forth Region and conditions / charges associated with its use are currently under discussion. An update will be published as soon as arrangements have been agreed.
