John Muir Way

The John Muir Way Partnership Group was established in late 2016 to oversee the further development and ongoing management of the route. A number of working groups are also operating with the purpose of maintaining the route, planning and delivering upgrades or making further links to the route, supporting economic development, community engagement, communications and events. CSGNT is working to secure funding to support future activity. In January 2017, the route was granted Scotland’s Great Trails status by Scottish Natural Heritage.
