One of Scotland’s Great Trails, the John Muir Way offers walkers and cyclists a unique journey through Scotland’s landscapes, history and heritage.
Traversing central Scotland coast to coast in 134 miles, it links Helensburgh in the west with Dunbar in the east (birthplace of ‘father of national parks’ John Muir).
The Boathouse straddles sections 3 & 4 of the route and is an ideal place to stop for food and refreshments or to stop-over when completing the trail, or as a base for shorter excursions. Just a mile to the west is Barr Hill Roman Fort on the Antonine Wall, while to the east you can stroll along the Forth & Clyde Canal all the way to the famous Falkirk Wheel.
We’re also proud to be a Stamping Station for the John Muir Way passport, so pop in to have yours stamped. Plus we welcome John Muir Way passport holders; simply show your passport to a member of staff to receive a complimentary coffee.
