The sixth stage of the John Muir Way crosses farmland from Linlithgow to reach the Firth of Forth at Bo'ness, passing historic Kinneil House on the way. It then follows the coastline, which is a mix of industrial and wooded with good views to reach Blackness Castle. Hopetoun House is next on route to another coastal section before the imposing bridges and South Queensferry is reached. All facilities here as well as Dalmeny station for trains to Edinburgh and north.
