John Muir was born in Dunbar on April 21st 1838, and as a child developed a deep love of the natural world around his home. He was known to escape from his bedroom window into the Dunbar countryside and he began his "love affair" with nature. He is best known for his conservation voice establishing the ‘Sierra Club’, his writing and for encouraging the establishment of the Yosemite National Park. Scotland has been quite slow to recognize its famous son, The John Muir Trail in California has been famous for years, but it took until 2014 for him to be honoured with a trail in his native land. The John Muir Way is a route that symbolically links Dunbar with Scotland’s first national park, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs and with Helensburgh in the west, forming a Scottish coast to coast route. It provides an accessible and varied route across the Scottish low lands, following a mixture of seaside, river and canal side paths, with some forestry walking for good measure. Altogether the route links together some fine landscapes, countryside and places of historical and natural interest.
