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.

MARCH 31, 2020:

The Scottish and UK governments have issued advice to slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). The recommendations include limiting “unnecessary social contact” in restaurants & pubs, and avoiding the use of public transport “as much as possible”. This advice broadly describes our social and transport activity on a normal club walk.

The Monklands Group committee has therefore decided to cancel the two walks remaining on the winter programme (March 29 and April 4) and to delay issuing the summer programme until a more appropriate time. The club’s Easter weekend in Oban has been cancelled. Please see full details at bottom of this page.

Ramblers UK has released an article on their website relating to the Coronavirus and advice for the many members and volunteers throughout the UK. Follow the link to their article below.
