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
Thursday, 25 November 2020

Due to the latest restrictions for North Lanarkshire e.g. “Outdoors and in public places: 6 people from 2 households”, we are not yet in a position to organise a club walk. We appreciate everyone is desperate to get back out again, but we have to think of the safety of our members. In the meantime, if anyone has any local walks they would like to see on the website, please pass to any committee member. These however will not be classed as official Monklands Ramblers club walks.

We would also like to draw to your attention the  documents for our AGM below and our upcoming Zoom meeting. If anyone has any queries about any of the documents please send in the first instance to Christine at cmrambler@talktalk.net.
