Welcome to the Linlithgow Ramblers web site


This is the Linlithgow Ramblers’ web site, which incorporates all our informational pages, forms, downloadable documents, the Walk Reports blog, and Photo Gallery all in one place.

Following instructions received from the Ramblers head office, all previously scheduled Ramblers group walks and activities have been cancelled. Please visit https://www.ramblers.org.uk/coronavirus for more information. However, we are delighted to be able to advise you that some Ramblers volunteering activities can now be done safely and in line with the latest government advice. Please visit our Scheduled Events page to see the walks we have planned.

You have to be registered and logged in to view some of the pages on this site. If you have already registered, you may stay logged in by selecting “Remember me” when logging in, then you will not be asked for your user name and password on future visits to the site.

The Home page shows the latest Announcement post, which will be updated occasionally, so please be sure to check it each time you visit. The panoramic photo at the top will also change from time to time. (Current photo: Stuc a’Chroin and Ben Vorlich with a rainbow – Sandy Janas)

Downloading photos

Photos attached to walk reports are copyrighted by the photographer, but you may save copies for your own personal use.

To download a photo, right-click on the thumbnail at the foot of the report, and from the menu which pops up, select “Download Linked File” or “Download Linked File As…” in Safari, or “Save target as” in Windows 10 Edge, or “Save link as…” in Firefox. Other browsers may use slightly different terminology but the result will be the same.

The image will then be saved to your “Downloads” folder, or whatever other location you selected.

Please note that photos are stored on the server with a maximum dimension of 2048px. If you require higher resolution you will need to contact the photographer, who is always credited in the caption attached to the photo.

You must also contact the photographer if you wish to use the photo for any other purpose such as publishing elsewhere on the world wide web, or in printed material, and obtain permission for that use.
