In his latest film ‘Unhurried,’ Edinburgh-based filmmaker and adventurer Markus Stitz documents his trip on the John Muir Way, one of Scotland’s Great Trails. The film reveals a unique coast to coast journey through Scotland’s varied landscapes, history, and heritage, during which Markus reflects on one of the great advantages of traveling by bike: being able to slow down and connect more fully with your surroundings.

The John Muir Way links Helensburgh in the west with Dunbar, the birthplace of John Muir, in the east. A GPX is available to download for free on the John Muir Way and Bikepacking Scotland websites.

The route passes through Scotland’s first national park, Loch Lomond & The Trossachs, and provides a journey of contrasts and the chance to connect with nature, taking advantage of the green spaces that link coasts, villages, towns, and the capital city, Edinburgh.
