The John Muir Way offers 215 km of walking, as well as many opportunities to savour some magnificent views and to see Scotland's natural and cultural heritage. The coast to coast route is recognised as one of Scotland's Great Trails.
The route is named after the world-renowned conservationist and founder of America's National Parks who was born in Dunbar in 1838. It also forms part of the North Sea Trail.
Officially opening in April 2014, the John Muir Way stretches 215 km from John Muir's birthplace, Dunbar, to the town of Helensburgh. Along the way, the marked trail takes in Blackness Castle, Campsie Fells, the Strathkelvin Railway Path and the Stoneymollan Road which offers scenic views over Loch Lomond and the surrounding mountains.
There are many options for walking the Way. It can be walked in short sections as 'day walks' with public transport available at many points along the route to return you to your starting point; or you may wish to walk a section as part of a circular route combining with other paths joining the Way.
