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.

To all Monklands Ramblers Members

It has been a year now since our last club walk and what a year!! This pandemic has interfered with every aspect of our lives and as with any club we are missing not only our walks programme but our social events. It has been very hard for people who are on their own and relied on the walks for exercise and social company. Meeting our friends and especially our families has been very difficult. We as a club have gained life-long friends by meeting up and walking on a regular basis. I encourage members to keep in touch with your fellow walkers during this trying times and try to ease the loneliness that some may be feeling during these lockdown periods.

Hopefully it will not be too long before we can meet up again to enjoy our walks and social events. Monklands Ramblers will continue as soon as we are allowed. You can log onto the Scottish Ramblers website where you can participate in virtual training offered by them which will benefit anyone who feels they can enhance their skills whilst in lockdown.

Hopefully you are all well but if you need any help please contact myself or any committee member who will gladly be of assistance. Keep safe.

Yours Sincerely

Bernadette Boulton (Chairperson)
