Group name: Livingston
This group is a part of Lothian & Borders Area.
Formed in 1980, most of our members come from around Livingston including Bathgate, East, West & Mid Calder, Uphall, Blackburn and Broxburn.
Livingston Ramblers have 3 walking groups: The Thursday Alternative – walks which take place on alternate Thursdays throughout the year commencing at 10am. These are generally between 5 and 8 miles. The Saturday Challenge – walks take place most Saturdays, often starting at 7 or 7:30 am, with some challenging walks with Munros and Corbetts to the fore. The Sunday Venture walks start at 8am on most Sundays, ranging from 7 to 13 miles, and include a wide walk variety e.g. along river banks, valleys or forests, hill climbs and coastal rambles.
Walks are followed by a visit to a local hostelry or tearoom for a meal or snack. Most walk destinations are reached by car, so car-sharing is common. There are occasional weekends away plus the odd social occasion.
