John Muir Way

The John Muir Way is 134 miles or 215Km long over easy to moderate terrain and can be completed end-to-end on foot, taking 9-11 days and by bike over 4-5 days. Some sections are also suitable for horseriding.

The John Muir Way is designed for everyone to use, passing through countryside, coastal towns, cities and villages. It offers a window on Scotland's ancient landscape, its industrial heritage and present day urban life. It is well-serviced by both bus and train. If you want to take in shorter loops and day trips or complete the route in sections this is possible too. 

Most people prefer the prevailing winds behind them, so the map and guidebook describe the route from west to east.

Visit the individual pages on Walking, Cycling, Horseriding and Accessibility for more detailed advice.
