The Thomas Muir Heritage Trail

The Thomas Muir Heritage Trail is 18km in length from Clachan of Campsie to Huntershill, Bishopbriggs and offers visitors a great walking or cycling experience. The route itself stretches through some of East Dunbartonshire’s most attractive landscapes, and towns and villages that have a direct link to the Thomas Muir story as interpreted by built heritage along the way. Regular way markers allow the trail to be  navigated in full or in part and from either direction.

The historic town of Kirkintilloch offers a natural halfway point along the route or an alternative start/finish location for those wishing a shorter experience. Most of the route is on established off-road rural and urban paths, the terrain is level and suitable for all ages whether on foot or bicycle.  For more information on the history of Thomas Muir click here: http://thomasmuir.co.uk/heritage-trail.html
