John Muir Way – Helensburgh to Dunbar – 134 miles/215.5 km
My name is Steve Higson and I offer a secure, reliable and professional service allowing you to enjoy your walk or cycle on the John Muir Way without the burden of your luggage.
The extended John Muir Way is officially launched on 21st April 2014 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of John Muir’s death. Stretching from the waters of the Clyde at Helensburgh to John Muir’s birthplace in Dunbar, this new trail will allow everyone to explore the nature and landscapes of Central Scotland on this interesting Coast to Coast route.
Benefits of using the John Muir Way Baggage Service
+ You only need to carry a day-sack with essentials
+ Your heavy luggage is moved for you – have your head up to enjoy the Way
+ Use your existing holiday luggage – No need to buy an expensive rucksack
+ Professional, secure and reliable door to door service
Having walked the Way I would recommend that you walk from Helensburgh in the West to Dunbar in the East and finish your trek at John Muir’s Birthplace in Dunbar. The walk improves and changes as you walk in this direction. Also the prevailing wind is from West to East and can slow your progress along the Way.
The Official Map/Guide (Rucksacks Readers) is set out from Helensburgh to Dunbar. The baggage service is priced in this direction. Bags can be moved East to West with a surcharge.
About me. I am a retired Scotch Whisky Manager, in recent years I have owned a Scottish Long Distance Walking Holiday company, Gemini Walks. Gemini is now in the capable hands of Julie Deans and I now concentrate on the John Muir Way from April to October. Over winter I work as a tour guide at The Helix, home of the Kelpies, in Falkirk – my home town. I am also Santa for a month at Callendar House ho ho ho.
I look forward to helping you on the John Muir Way.
Best wishes, Steve
