The new John Muir Way links Dunbar and Helensburgh on the Firth of Clyde “sparking awareness of the local landscapes and wild places along the route”. The route has been developed by Scottish Natural Heritage with support from a range of partners in the Central Scotland Green Network, including East Lothian Council.
On the day of the opening of the John Muir Way there will be celebrations in Dunbar High Street 10.30am-2.30pm. First minister Alex Salmond officially opens the John Muir Way at Muir’s birthplace in Dunbar at 12 noon. All are welcome to come along and enjoy the Festival atmosphere, celebratory art, music, performance and food stalls. A stylised tree will be raised in tribute to Muir’s enduring love of giant sequoias and there will be a variety of other artworks.
