The perfect way to mark your progress from coast to coast, the John Muir Way official passport is also your ticket to exclusive offers along the route.

Stamping Stations logo

Show it off, frame it, or keep it under your pillow! However you choose to celebrate, the John Muir Way passport records your achievement in completing the 10 sections between Helensburgh and Dunbar.

Whether you’re doing the route in one go or tackling one section at a time, be sure to have your passport stamped to mark your progress. When you've collected all ten stamps, you can claim your free completer certificate.

There are ‘stamping stations’ dotted along the route in all sorts of places, from paddle steamers to pubs and castles to cafes. Check where to find them on the map in our 'Plan Your Trip' section and look out for the STAMPING STATION logo at venues along the route.
