The John Muir Way is a 134 mile (215 km) long-distance footpath in Scotland. Named after the Scottish born conservationist John Muir, this coast to coast route connects Dunbar, his birthplace in the east, with Helensburgh on the west coast, from where he emigrated, aged 10, with his family to America. Crossing Scotland's heartland, the footpath encounters great natural beauty, stunning views and tranquil wild places; sites of historical importance and industrial heritage; grand buildings and impressive engineering; Scotland's historic capital, Edinburgh and coastal towns and villages. The walking route is highlighted in yellow (which includes handy mileage markers to gauge distances when planning sections of the walk to enjoy), while alternative sections of the cycle route are identified with an orange highlight. The A-Z Adventure Series of maps combines the best of OS and A-Z, creating the perfect companion for walkers, off-road cyclists, horse riders and anyone wishing to explore the great outdoors. Other titles within the A-Z Adventure series include: Cotswold Way, Glyndwr's Way, Hadrian's Wall Path, Norfolk Coast Path and Peddars Way, North Downs Way, Pembrokeshire Coast Path, Offa's Dyke Path, Pennine Way, South Downs Way, SW Coast Path, Thames Path, The Ridgeway and Yorkshire Wolds Way.
