Dalkeith, Midlothian –
Dalkeith, Midlothian Nestled in the beautiful Midlothian countryside, yet just eight miles southeast of Edinburgh, the historic town of Dalkeith has seen its popularity soar in recent years, thanks to the reopening of the Borders Railway between the Scottish Borders and Edinburgh, calling at Eskbank station. With its picturesque setting between the northern and southern forks of the River Esk, not to mention fantastic transport links and local amenities, Dalkeith is an ideal choice for families and professionals looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the capital.
In the traditional town centre a diverse blend of independent shops and high-street retailers cater for everyday essentials, and these are supplemented by several large supermarkets nearby. Residents of Dalkeith also have no shortage of outdoor pursuits right on their doorstep, from tranquil riverside walks to a relaxed round of golf at one of the many prestigious courses nearby. Dalkeith Country Park also promises a funfilled family day out, with activities for all ages and interests, including Fort Douglas – a woodland adventure playground of tree houses, bridges and secret tunnels!
Excellent nursery and primary education is provided at a choice of local primary schools, followed by secondary education at the purpose-built Dalkeith Schools Community Campus, which accommodates Dalkeith High School and St. David’s Roman Catholic High School. Dalkeith is exceptionally well connected, owing to comprehensive public bus services and rail links between Eskbank station and Edinburgh Waverley.
Close proximity to Edinburgh City Bypass also allows convenient travel to Edinburgh International Airport and the M8/M9 motorway network.
