Strathkelvin

Group name: Strathkelvin

This group is a part of North Strathclyde Area.

Our groups help local people enjoy walking and protect the places we all love to walk. Most groups organise regular walks led by local experts – a great way to get outside, make new friends and discover how walking boosts your health and happiness. You’re very welcome to try walking with us, or to get involved in looking after paths and green spaces and opening up new places to explore.

Our group covers the former local authority area of Strathkelvin District. This includes Kirkintilloch, Lenzie, Bishopbriggs, Lennoxtown, Milton-of-Campsie, Torrance and surrounding areas. We offer a year-round programme of walks, covering both rambling and hill-walking, with 2 levels of walk every Saturday and a low-level walk on the first Wednesday of each month. Our walks range in difficulty from easy canal paths (C grade) to the more challenging Munros (A grade).

We meet up in Kirkintilloch and operate a car sharing scheme with passengers making a contribution to fuel costs. During the summer months, we organise a number of bus trips, allowing us to go further afield and include some linear walks in the programme. In addition, we have a monthly programme of social events.

If you are interested in ‘giving it a go’, please get in touch with us. You will be made most welcome. For more details, please check out our website  www.strathkelvinramblers.org.uk
