Young Scot

Young Scot is the national organisation for young people in Scotland. It provides a range of information, discounts, activities and opportunities for young people.

D&G Young Scot

Young people can use the Young Scot card as proof of age, cashless catering in some schools and discounts.

How to get a card

Most young people apply for a young Scot Card through their school in year P7. If you haven't got a card, you can find out how to apply for one on our National Entitlement Card page.

Replacement cards

If you have lost your card or need a replacement please call Dumfries & Galloway Council on 030 33 33 3000 or e-mail NEC@dumgal.gov.uk (please ensure you include your name, address, date of birth and reason for replacement).

You can request a photo upgrade at one of the validation points.


Young Scot Rewards lets you take part in fun activities and get exclusive experiences. Have fun doing activities will earn you points and you can spend your points on great rewards.  Young people get points on their Young Scot Card for being involved in YSEG.

Travel discounts

You may be able to use your Young Scot card to get discounts on bus, train and ferry travel.

If you are 16, 17 and 18 and have a Young Scot National Entitlement Card simply show your card when buying a train ticket to get great discounted fares - you no longer need the separate Scottish Youth Railcard!
