Hotels in Dalkeith
A mere eight miles from Scotland's capital is the quaint traditional Scottish town of Dalkeith. Situated in Midlothian and bisected by picturesque rivers River North Esk and River South Esk, this historic town has just over 12,000 inhabitants.
The High Street, much of which is a conservation area, is home to many places of interest. The medieval Church of St Nicholas bears the resting place of Joan Stewart, daughter of James I. The Corn Exchange, which was Scotland's largest indoor grain market, is now home to Dalkeith Museum. The 17th-century toll booth once housed a prison and a dungeon! All are within walking distance of each other.
Dalkeith County Park offers peace and tranquillity in a truly beautiful setting. Here you can walk through scenic footpaths, cycle or ride a horse along the wooded bridleways or fish in the two rivers flowing through the park. Within the park is Dalkeith Palace, built in 1702 on the site of a former castle. A section of the tower house of the old castle can still be seen on the western side of the palace today.
Just six miles away is Midlothian Snowsports Centre, where you can practice skiing and snowboarding on the longest dry slope in Europe. Here little ones can also enjoy ‘tubing'!
For a real treat, head about six miles away to Carrington, where Alba Ballooning offers champagne hot air balloon flights over the picturesque rural landscapes of Midlothian and the surrounding Peeblesshire Moorfoot and Pentland Hills.
