Dalkeith Country Park is a truly individual place. Just a few miles from Edinburgh, just off the city bypass, you'll find Fort Douglas Adventure Park and Restoration Yard Store, Restaurant and Wellness Lab. Plus, it's all set in 1,000 acres of beautiful parkland with marked walking and biking trails and a complete program of special events throughout the year.
There's also the more extensive park to explore, with architecture to admire and marked walking and biking trails to suit the whole family. Explore Old Oak Wood with trees over 900 years old, meander along the river, have a picnic, or just breathe in the fresh air of this beautiful country park, which you'll find hard to believe is only a few miles from downtown Edinburgh. Admire the historical architecture built by the ancestors of the Buccleuch family. They still own the estate to this day, by famous Scottish architects such as James Smith, Robert Adam, and William Burn. You can also take a hike in nature: deer, otters, badgers, and buzzards make their home in the park.
