NEW TRIP! SCOTLAND - THE JOHN MUIR WAY - JULY 7 - 21. 2019 (15 days/14 nights)
In 2014, Scotland opened the John Muir Way, a 130 mile coast-to-coast trail that stretches from his birthplace, Dunbar, where he made his first hikes and rock climbed the ruins of the old castle, to Helensburgh, near Glasgow, where the trail ends. On this trip we will tour the beautiful cities of Edinburgh and Glasgow, staying in private hostel rooms in 17th century houses, then on to the trail of the John Muir Way, averaging 11 miles of hiking a day, on mostly level trails, at sea level. Our hike will take us coast-to-coast across Scotland, from the Atlantic coast to the North Sea. Each person is responsible for securing her own round trip airfare, from your local airport to Edinburgh, Scotland, departing on July 7, 2019 and arriving in Edinburgh Airport no later than 9 am on July 8, due to the time change.
This trip includes private guided daily hikes on the John Muir Way, tours of Edinburgh and Glasgow, 14 nights of lodging at charming B & Bs, and breakfasts every day. Not included are airfare, lunches and dinners.
Cost: $3,000 ($200 per day).Call early to reserve--maximum group of 8--this one will sell out quickly!
