Cairn Ban Mountaineering Club
Cairn Ban Mountaineering Club (CBMC) has been dedicated to hillwalking and mountaineering in Scotland since 1981. We are based in Kilbarchan (south-west of Glasgow), but our members live much dispersed throughout the central belt of Scotland and far beyond.
We have a very mixed membership, from relative novices who enjoy the security of a group, to experienced mountaineers (including an Everest summiteer and mountain rescue team members). Some, due to family and other commitments, venture out only a few times per year, while others get out on the hills nearly every weekend (and on days in between as well!).
The mainstay of of activities is a fortnightly Sunday outing during the winter, but we have various other events well.
Prospective new members should check out our website and contact the club secretary for more information about meeting points and times.
Clyde Valley Ramblers
We are a friendly group of approximately 160 members who enjoy the opportunity to explore Scotland`s natural heritage and its beautiful countryside. We also hold social events including an annual ceilidh, theatre nights, and weekend walking trips.
Our walk programme is very varied and covers an area from Braemar to the English Lakes. Two walks of varying difficulty are organised every second Sunday throughout the year, so we`re sure you will be able to find walks to suit you.
A coach leaves Hamilton at 8.30 am; (unless stated otherwise on the walk programme). It is often fully booked so make a point of reserving a seat to avoid disappointment.

Lomond Mountaineering Club
Lomond Mountaineering club is a diverse bunch of people from all walks of life who come together to enjoy outdoor activities. The main things we do are rock-climbing, winter climbing, mountaineering and hillwalking.
The hut at Onich - comfortable but basic - is the base for much of the mountain activity, with people meeting up there informally at weekends. There`s good access from there to Glencoe, Lochaber, and Ardgour, a nice beach for barbecues, and a pub next door.
There are also usually people going out walking or climbing from the Central Belt just for the day at the weekend - car costs are shared, we`ll often stop for a drink or a bite to eat on the way back, and an outing might involve both climbing and walking groups.
Wednesday night climbing is one of the mainstays of the club, with crag meets in summer and climbing walls in winter, and the meet at the pub afterwards - from about 9.30pm onwards - is also important.
Outings are arranged on Wednesday nights at the pub, through the website forums, and by phone, and a request for people to do something with usually succeeds.
We enjoy the social side of things too, with a well-attended annual dinner and less formal events organised by members.
People who are new to climbing and hill-walking are welcome, and will usually find partners who`ll help them learn the ropes.
Most members do other outdoor activities too: anything from sea kayaking and surfing to mountain-biking and caving, so it`s a good club to expand your outdoor horizons as well as getting involved in the Glasgow climbing scene.
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.
The club was formed in the summer of 1985 by a few local people who were interested in hill-walking. At that time the walks were fairly informally organised and people travelled to the walks in cars. Nowadays we are organised into a proper club with a full elected committee. Our members consist of people from all walks of life ranging in age from 20 - 75. We run a 29 seater coach or minibus to all of our walks (which are always covered beforehand by the leaders), we have walks programmes which cover Scotland and northern England and cater for all levels of fitness.
