About Dalkeith Country Park
Dalkeith Country Park is a destination unlike any other located just a few miles from Edinburgh off the bypass. Our mission is to make you happy, inspire you and deliver an exceptional day out. You'll find the magical Fort Douglas adventure playground alongside award-winning Restoration Yard, a gorgeous store, café and wellbeing space in the former eighteenth century stableyard which has been lovingly restored.
There's also the wider park to explore with waymarked walking and cycling trails to suit the whole family and special events too. Explore the Old Oak Wood with trees over 900 years old, enjoy a picnic in one of the areas we've created, or simply breathe in the fresh air of this beautiful country park, which you'll find hard to believe is just a few miles from Edinburgh's city centre.
