The scheme, which came into operation in January 2010, operates on payment by Direct Debit and all users receive a ‘smartcard’ to access the scheme.  For those aged between 11 and 25 their ‘Young Scot’ card can be used for access whilst the over 60’s can use their National Entitlement card. An application form and a Direct Debit mandate is available from Sports Centres across the Islands or can be downloaded by following the link below.

Over the last six years, thousands of local people have signed up to the scheme, which is the cheapest of its kind in Scotland – why not take your first steps to good health today? - ‘Slàinte Mhath’!!
