John Muir Way : A Scottish Coast-to-coast Route Spiral bound
The John Muir Way runs for 134 miles (215 km) coast-to-coast across Scotland's centre, from Helensburgh on the Clyde to Dunbar on the North Sea.
The route is suitable for users of all kinds, and it readily breaks into ten sections for walkers or five for cyclists.
Its appeal ranges from the domestic architecture of Helensburgh (passing Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Hill House) 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 and the Forth Bridges to the glories of Edinburgh.
It finishes on the wide coastal expanses of East Lothian, at Dunbar with its ruined castle and John Muirs birthplace cottage.
