We are putting together our next winter 2019/20 programme, and we would like to get some suggestions in Scotland for walking trails/routes. If you have any suggestions, please contact our Walks Convenor, Ken Paton by email: kpaton52@btinternet.com .
Thank you for your suggestions in advance from the Monklands Ramblers committee.

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.
