Product Description


This book is a delight. Pocket-sized and ring-bound, it has a back cover that unfolds into a map of the whole route, which you could easily follow armed with this guide alone. It's been prepared as much for cyclists as for walkers, and at times unofficial options are suggested ... The route seems destined to become one of Scotland's most popular, blessed as it is with plentiful transport links, places to eat and stay, and generally easy terrain. --Scotland Outdoors May/June 2014 page 26

The book shares all the features we have come to know and appreciate from other Rucksack Readers: including waterproof paper, a robust spiral binding, and a fold out route map. Add in an introduction which covers planning issues such as public transport, accommodation, refreshments, timings and terrain and you really do end up with everything you need in order to dig out the hiking boots or cycle clips ... The heart of the book divides the route into 10 geographical sections, giving detailed route instructions and background information for each. In places the walking and cycling routes diverge, and there are also "unofficial" excursions and alternatives given where the "official" way omits particularly important attractions (such as Linlithgow). --Undiscovered Scotland online review

The John Muir Way is a nicely produced guidebook in a format that makes it easy to slip into your rucksack and can easily be consulted while on foot or on wheels. Its information on planning the route, accommodation on the way and public transport links is comprehensive and there is plenty of extra background information both on Muir himself and on the places the trail passes through to enhance the journey. There is little to find fault with in this little guide, apart perhaps from the small scale of the maps, something that can be solved by forking out either for the Rucksack Readers map or perhaps OS mapping. --Reviewed by Bob Smith on Grough

Excellent pocket book, well laid out. Just wish the map had been a bit more detailed, very basic fold out map.
