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
Tuesday, 05 January 2021

The committee had been hoping to start off the New Year with local walks using cars, but unfortunately due to the further restrictions from the Government and the Ramblers Association below this will not now take place. This will be reviewed in February, after which time we will update the website.

From 5 January 2021, it is the law to ‘stay at home’ at all times apart from when taking part in a few limited exempt activities, which include local outdoor recreation.

SCOTLAND WALKS

Walking with family & friends: A legal exemption allows unlimited local outdoor walks, provided you follow existing travel advice. You can walk in one household, or groups of up to two people from up to two households. There are separate exemptions for children aged 11 and under.

Ramblers group walks: All Scottish group walks are suspended until at least the end of January. We will update you further in due course about February and beyond.

Path maintenance: All path maintenance activities are currently suspended.

Other Ramblers activities: All in-person Ramblers activities are currently suspended. AGMs must be held online.
