Guide Dogs Scotland
Bringing you all the latest news from around Scotland as well as features from our staff, volunteers and guide dog owners.
Thousands have got behind our appeal to help find missing guide dog Tess. The black curly coated retriever went missing while out walking off-lead with her owner in Nairn, near Inverness. Please join our nationwide appeal to try and reunite Tess with her owner.
Guide Dogs Scotland's My Guide service is all about getting blind and partially sighted people out and about in their community. My Guide matches a person who is blind or partially sighted with a trained volunteer – and we are recruiting volunteers across Scotland.
“My Guide matches a person who is blind or partially sighted with a trained volunteer,” explains My Guide Ambassador Rosalind Wallace.

Guide dog owner Frankie Thomson says it was one of the greatest days of his life when he recently took part in the Commonwealth Games Queen’s Baton Relay through his hometown of Loanhead, outside Edinburgh.
And it was important to Frankie that guide dog Flynn was there to share the limelight, as he credits Flynn with turning his life around.
For many first time guide dog owners, being matched with a guide dog is an exciting but challenging experience - but for Frankie, who was born deaf and has no speech, the challenges were all the greater.
