John Muir Meets Tom Weir Celebratory Walk

16:00 - 19:00

John Muir Meets Tom Weir Celebratory Walk: Saturday 26 April 2014, 4pm - depart either Balloch or Helensburgh

The Friends of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs will be sponsoring a unique walking event along the newly improved route, which links Helensburgh and Balloch.

Departing at 4.00pm from either Helensburgh or Balloch, walkers will converge on Goukhill, a stunning viewpoint overlooking Loch Lomond where they will witness a meeting between 'John Muir' and 'Tom Weir'.

Much-loved and remembered Scottish walker Tom Weir, who died a few years ago, was also a notable supporter of conservation and National Parks; and all proceeds from this event will go towards a campaign to erect a statue in Tom’s memory.
