'''Lone Guides''' or '''Lones''' are those [[Girl Guides]] and [[Girl Scouts ]] who do not attend group meetings for a variety of reasons. They are organised into groups that keep in touch, for example, by letter or email. Each member carries out their organisation's normal programme on their own as much as they are able. The first official Lone Guides started in 1912 in the UK. Many countries have Lone Guides.

=== United Kingdom - [[Girlguiding UK]] ===
Lone Guiding started in 1912. The first Lone Guide conference was held at [[Foxlease]] in 1923. In 1925, separate Lone Ranger companies were started. Lone Guiding still operates in the UK at every level.
==== 1st Lone Company ====
1st Lone Company was established in 1912 by [[Agnes Baden-Powell]]. The Captain was Nesta G. Maude, the very first Guide to earn the [[Silver Fish]] award. Members of this company lived in such diverse places as England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Cyprus, Poland and Belgium. They kept in contact by a postal newsletter. There were several patrols, including the [[Thistle]] patrol.
There is record of a camp at [[Eridge]], taking tea with [[Agnes Baden-Powell]] at her house and visits to Guide Headquarters (at that time located at 116 Victoria Street in London) in the first few years of the company's existence.
