Welcome to the
Monklands Ramblers

We are one of the longest running R.A. clubs in Scotland, and the first Scottish R.A. club on the Internet!
We are based in the Monklands area of Central Scotland in North Lanarkshire, some 12 miles east of Glasgow.

Club News
15th July, 2020: Update on restart of walks

Whilst we are all very keen to start our group walks again, the update states:

“In Scotland – some limited outdoor volunteer activities and small group walks can resume. Group size must be limited to a maximum of 15 people in total from no more than five households”.

Apart from a few couples that come out most of our members are single walkers so we may only be able to have a total of five people at a time. We think it would be better to wait until the next update as it is uncertain when we will be able to run a coach so initially walks may need to be circular with walkers meeting at the start/finish. Please keep checking the website for further updates.

– Bernadette Boulton (Chairperson)
