Tackle it in one 134-mile adventure or split it up into shorter sections. One of Scotland’s Great Trails, the John Muir Way offers a journey through Scotland’s landscapes, history and heritage. Traversing central Scotland, it links Helensburgh in the west with John Muir’s birth place Dunbar in the east and is fully way-marked for walking and cycling.
