Details

The John Muir Way runs for 134 miles (215 km) coast-to-coast across central Scotland, from Helensburgh on the Clyde to Dunbar on the North Sea. The route is as suitable for cyclists as for walkers, and it can be tackled as a coast-to-coast expedition or in sections - ten for walkers or five for cyclists.

The John Muir Way's appeal ranges from the Charles Rennie Mackintosh architecture of Helensburgh through the scenic grandeur of Loch Lomond, along two famous canals and past the amazing Falkirk Wheel, beside the Roman Antonine Wall, passing Linlithgow Palace, Blackness Castle and the Forth Bridges to the capital glories of Edinburgh. It goes beside the Firth of Forth to reach North Berwick, then heads inland to finish at Dunbar with its ruined castle and the John Muir birthplace.

This guidebook contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday on a bike or on foot:

  • background on John Muir's life, the canal heritage and wildlife
  • detailed description of the route from west to east
  • summary of each section showing distance, terrain and food/drink stops
  • details of visitor attractions and side-trips
  • planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane
  • detailed mapping of the John Muir Way on 20 pages at 1:75,000
  • in full colour, with 100 photographs
  • further route options, diversions and an unofficial shortcut
  • rainproof paper throughout.

Although John Muir loved the mountains, he also said "All the wild world is beautiful, and it matters but little where we go, to highlands or lowlands, woods or plains, on the sea or land" (Unpublished journals). It was his passion "to entice people to look at Nature's loveliness" and as a boy he fell in love with the wild Nature on his doorstep in Dunbar. Follow this route to discover a surprising degree of wildness as the John Muir Way crosses central Scotland.
