Step into a World of Adventures

Outdoor enthusiasts and families can all step into a world of adventure with the first ever John Muir Coast Festival, taking place in East Lothian from 22nd to 24th April 2016.

John Muir, the famous conservationist and founder of America’s national parks, was born in Dunbar where his love of the great outdoors began. The festival is inspired by Muir’s advocacy of the benefits of an outdoor lifestyle.

From East Lothian’s first ever night golf event to an ultra marathon and wakeboarding competition – the festival has something to suit everyone.
