Dalkeith Country Park
Five miles from Edinburgh city centre, Dalkeith Country Estate is home to some beautiful woodland, with bluebell walks, riverside trails, cycle tracks and picnic areas for families to enjoy. There’s also an excellent adventure park, with giant slides, tree tip walkways, rope swings and its famous flying fox zip slide.
Opened in July 2016, the brand new Dalkeith Country Park is an experience unlike any other. You can find the magical new Fort Douglas play park alongside Restoration Yard, a gorgeous new store, cafe and wellbeing lab in the former stableyard which has been lovingly restored to create a truly special day out.
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.
