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
JUNE 03, 2020:

Hi everyone,
I am sure you are all missing our regular walks because of the Covid-19 virus. I hope you have all been safe and well and no-one has had a hard time.

We don’t know yet when it will be safe for us to get back out again but I don’t think it will be for a while yet. Numbers will be restricted and I’m sure the bus company will be under instructions to limit passenger numbers also. We will await information from the Ramblers Association.

It has affected the Club’s social outings including our Easter trip to Oban and our quiz night which was very disappointing but necessary to ensure everyone’s safety from this virus. The quiz night will still take place at a later date.

Keep you and your family safe and well and stay healthy. Enjoy the sunshine until we all meet up again.

– Bernadette Boulton (Chairperson)
