The John Muir Way stretches 134 miles (215 kilometres) across Scotland’s heartland, running between Helensburgh in the west through to Dunbar on the east coast and Muir's birthplace. Echoing Muir’s own personal journey - growing up in Scotland’s east coast before travelling to the west where he set sail for life in America - the route has been designed to take in castles, historic towns and villages, stunning coastal scenery as well as Scotland’s first national park, Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park.

John Muir’s life in America as a naturalist and conservationist who helped save Yosemite Valley, Sequoia National Park and other wilderness areas has already fostered an international affinity with the route in Scotland. It has quickly become highly regarded amongst long-distance walkers and cyclists since its launch in 2014, and the route has continued to develop over the past years. In addition, the location, accessibility and variety of experiences along the route have secured its popularity with local communities and businesses.

The John Muir Way presents an exciting opportunity to work creatively to complement your brand. If you would like to discuss ways in which we can work together, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

10,000 raingardens is our latest flagship CSGN project, currently in development with the Scottish Green Infrastructure Forum. Raingardens are a natural solution to help prevent surface water flooding after heavy rainfall, and also provide a range of biodiversity and climate change benefits. Raingardens and other similar green infrastructure come in many designs, harvesting rainwater to slowly release it back into the water cycle at a manageable pace. The project will make a real on-the-ground difference to communities across central Scotland, strengthening their resilience to the effects of climate change.

You may also be interested in having your own raingarden, green roof or green wall at your work premises. This is another way to actively support the delivery of the CSGN, or enhance your sponsorship package.

Our Vision for Central Scotland

‘By 2050, Central Scotland has been transformed into a place where the environment adds value to the economy and where people’s lives are enriched by its quality.’

The Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) will change the face of Central Scotland, by restoring and transforming the landscape of an area stretching from Ayrshire and Inverclyde in the west, to Fife and the Lothians in the east.

The CSGN is a national development within the National Planning Framework which aims to make ‘a significant contribution to Scotland's sustainable economic development’. It involves public agencies and stakeholders working together to align their policies, programmes and actions to achieve a common aim.
