    Dalkeith Country Park is a very special place. Only 5 miles from Edinburgh city centre, Dalkeith Country Park is your great centre for a fun family day out.

    Dalkeith Country Park is situated just five miles from the centre of Edinburgh, however when you enter the Park it feels like a million miles away.You and your family can re-charge your batteries in the quiet of this picturesque 500 acre woodland. Bluebell walks, riverside trails, cycle tracks and picnic areas offer a great chance to have a fun family day out. 

    Highland cow, lambs, piglets or horses are just some of the animals that you could meet at the Estate.  For the keen birders our woodlands are alive with birdsong. We can almost guarantee that you'll see many of our British species on your trails.
