John Muir Way 2nd edition
Sandra Bardwell and Jacquetta Megarry

published 2018 • 5.75" x 8.25" • 84 pages • color photos • maps
ISBN 9781898481836 • waterproof paperback/spiral • $19.95

The John Muir Way runs for 134 miles (215 km) coast-to-coast across Scotland's center, from Helensburgh on the Clyde to Dunbar on the North Sea. The low-level route is as suitable for cyclists as for walkers, and it can be tackled as a coast-to-coast expedition or in sections - ten for walkers or five for cyclists. It was developed by Scottish Natural Heritage and is due to be launched by Scotland's First Minister as part of the John Muir Festival in April 2014.

Its appeal ranges from the domestic architecture of Helensburgh (passing Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Hill House) through the scenic grandeur of Loch Lomond, along two famous canals and past the amazing Falkirk Wheel, beside the Roman Antonine Wall, passing Linlithgow Palace, Blackness Castle and the Forth Bridges to the glories of Edinburgh. It finishes on the wide coastal expanses of East Lothian, at Dunbar with its ruined castle and John Muir’s birthplace cottage.

This guidebook (updated in 2018) contains all you need to plan and enjoy your holiday on foot or bike:

• background on John Muir's life, the canal heritage and wildlife
• summary of each section showing distance, terrain and food/drink stops
• details of visitor attractions and side-trips
• planning information for travel by car, train, bus or plane
• drop-down map of the John Muir Way in six panels (1:120,000)
• in full color, with over 70 photographs
• rainproof paper throughout.

A dedicated lifelong walker, Sandra worked in Melbourne, Australia, as an archivist and historian after doing a PhD on the history of national parks in her home state of Victoria. In her spare time she wrote a regular column about bushwalking (hiking) in Melbourne's leading daily newspaper, and many articles and books on walking and national parks in south-eastern Australia (1977-89).

With her husband Hal, Sandra moved to Scotland in 1989, and they live beside Loch Ness. In recent years she has written guidebooks for Lonely Planet (Italy, Ireland, France, Scotland, Australia, 1998-2007), Rucksack Readers (England, Ireland and Scotland) and Sunflower Books (Croatia and Poland-Slovakia, 2006). She completed the Coast to Coast walk in June 2009 for her guidebook of that name, published March 2010. She was profiled in the Inverness Courier of 16.4.2010. 

Jacquetta Megarry is a professional author turned publisher. In 2000 she devised the weatherproof Rucksack Readers format after discovering the joys of long-distance walking. She has since written or co-authored 18 guidebooks in the series.
