John Muir Way
The John Muir Way is accessible to cruise passengers, as it passes the arrival points at Leith, Newhaven and South Queensferry. It is only a short distance from Rosyth.
The John Muir Way stretches for 134 miles across Scotland’s heartland, running between Helensburgh in the west through to Dunbar on the east coast.
East Lothian offers a great variety of landscapes for walking, with the Lammermuir Hills to the south, a coast of beaches and cliffs and an expanse of arable farmland in between. Many of the paths go to, or pass vantage points offering views of the surrounding rolling landscape. Amongst the features are many hidden gems - river valleys, woodland, secret bays and historic sites. It is now possible to walk the length of the East Lothian coast, almost 73km from Edinburgh to the Borders, leaflets are available to download by clicking here www.visiteastlothian.org/activities-walking.asp
