Dalkeith Country Park
Dalkeith Country Park is our smallest estate at only 2200 acres but with 600 acres of predominantly broadleaved woodland located only five miles from Edinburgh city centre. At the heart of the Country Park is the 600 year old Dalkeith Old Oak Wood nestling in the meetings of the North and South Esk rivers.
A £7million investment recently transformed the 18th century stableyard, adventure playground, grounds and walking/cycling trails into a landmark destination, encouraging both locals and visitors from across the UK and beyond to appreciate what Dalkeith and Midlothian has to offer. With the development of a new brand – Restoration Yard Store, Café and Wellbeing Lab, plus activities in the Park from cycling to zorbing, archery and bushcraft, over 50 new jobs have been created with an estimated 300,000 visitors expected in the first year.
