Bob Law Photography and Walking in Scotland: The John Muir Way

John Muir Statue. Dunbar
The John Muir Way starts over on the East Coast of Scotland past Edinburgh. The father of American Conservation and prime instigator of National Parks stateside was born and grew up in Dunbar. Around Dunbar is a fine stretch of coastline with many rewarding beach and cliff walks. Ideal for both holidays or day trips.

John Muir left Scotland with his family on a ship to the USA when he was around 11 years of age. As an adult he went on to walk 1000 miles  through his newly adopted country but he never forgot his roots in Scotland nor his explorations on the east coast.

The multi day long distance walk shown here runs from Dunbar then up the coastline past Edinburgh. It then weaves inland across the central belt towards Glasgow and Helensburgh. Retracing the route the family took on their journey to the promised land.
As you can see from these photos the coastline from Edinburgh is often spectacular and scenic. Well worth a visit.
