Welcome Guest or Fellow Rambler
Hello, these are the home pages of the Monklands Ramblers Club, one of the largest 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.

The two major towns in the area are Airdrie and Coatbridge, and it is from these towns that the majority of our 150+ members come from. There are also a significant number of members from other areas of Lanarkshire, in particular, Hamilton and Blantyre...Read More

    This will be an earlier start of 8am sharp at Airdrie since we will be taking the 9.45am ferry from Ardrossan to Brodick.

    The bus stays on the mainland and will return to collect the walkers who should arrive back in Ardrossan at 8.15pm (on the 7.20pm ferry from Brodick).

    Passengers should take change of clothes and all valuables with them since not yet clear if same bus will return in the evening and unfortunately we will not have time to leave any items at the left luggage due to the need to getting a bus to the beginning of the walks.

    The club will subsidise transport costs with a combined £15 fare which includes bus and ferry (normal ferry return price £7.80). Children aged under 16, fare will be £7 (bus and ferry). (The new walker £5 fare will not apply on this walk.)

    Both of the walks will start with a local bus trip from Brodick. Anyone with NEC senior cards should bring for free travel. Full fare prices are about £3 each way (only 1 journey for the hill group).
