Type of Trip



  • Explore the south of Scotland via a challenging running trail.

  • Experience stunning scenery from the west to east coast.

  • Have an experienced guide right by your side from start to end.


Pace yourself across the stunning southern lands of Scottish on the 130-mile (215km) long distance trail of the John Muir Way.

From Helensburgh on the west coast to Dunbar on the east coast, many spectacular sights are dotted along the way.

Runners will glide along the mixed route of canals, old railway tracks, quiet roads and grassy paths.

The trail follows great scenery, such as views of the freshwater Loch Lomond, which is considered the boundary between the lowlands and the highlands.

Some of the most scenic sections are saved until the end, such as the dramatic cliffs, sandstone arches and waterfalls.

The quality surface rolls and winds the southern stretches of Scotland with a few steeper sections that present rewarding challenges.

Each day presents a similar number of miles to complete, ranging from 24 miles to 29 miles. So the 5-day trail run is not for everyone. If you have a good level of fitness and stamina, then this exhilarating trip is for you.
