John Muir Way Events 2014 Fund

PDF Print

Funding is available for community events which celebrate the launch of the John Muir Way from April - June 2014

The John Muir Way is a new walking and cycling route from Dunbar to Helensburgh. If your group is nearby this could be an excellent opportunity to organise a special walk for your group and invite the local community to help recruit new walkers and raise awareness locally.

Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) is keen to receive funding applications to support events close to the John Muir Way route that meet their funding priorities. icon John Muir Way & SNH funding information (393.97 kB)

The events should raise awareness of the natural history and historic features along the Way, and encourage people to get outdoors and use the route on foot, on bike, and, in some sections, on horse or canoe.  They should promote the Way, encourage regular use of the Way by local communities and inspire through John Muir’s life and legacy.

Please contact your Development Officer if you would like to discuss a funding application.
