The earliest predecessor Group, either 1st Hackett or 1st Watson Scout Group, was formed in 1963. On 25 May 1972 a special meeting of both Hackett and Watson Groups decided that while the two troops would remain separate, the Group Committees would combine. The Groups amalgamated as 1st Majura Scout Group in October 1975. The name was later changed to Majura Mountain Scouts.
