    Hi Ben,
    I’ve contacted the Monklands Ramblers on a number of occasions, for a variety of reasons (Right of way walks, proposed windfarms, Core paths) and never had so much as an acknowledgement.
    I’m sure the Ramblers does a lot of good work at national level, which I’ve seen from Walk magazine, but it would be nice if that attitude could filter down to the local clubs.

    Cheers,
    Jim
