Alzheimer Scotland - Midlothian Memory Walk

About Alzheimer Scotland - Midlothian Memory Walk

Join us for a gentle stroll around the beautiful Dalkeith Country Park.

Take the shorter 3km walk for a gentle stroll around the beautiful park which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs. The longer 5km walk will take you further into the park. You'll take in the sights of the beautiful scenery around the River Esk. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change.

There will be exciting activities to keep you entertained prior to the walk starting.

Whilst enjoying the fun activities please take the opportunity to take time and think of those you are walking for by completing your 'I'm Walking For' signs and adding a loving memory to our Memory Wall.

Walk Distances: 3km & 5km
Minimum sponsorship: £100 (suggested)

More details:

Dogs: are welcome but we ask that you are responsible and ensure that you clean up after your dog during the walk and keep your dog on a lead.

Toilets: there are public toilet facilities within the Restoration Yard Café and shops close to the public car park.

Accessibility: the yellow waymarked Wildernesse Walk and red Lugtonhaugh Walk have paths suitable for bikes, buggies and wheelchairs. These are the routes we'll be using at the Memory Walks.

Car Park: there's free parking within Dalkeith Country Park on a first come, first served basis.

Refreshments: We’ll provide you with water and a snack at the end of the walk but it’s a good idea to have something with you to keep your energy levels up! The Restoration Café will be open prior, during and after our event.

Walk packs: will be sent out two weeks prior to the walk date. If you are registering online within two weeks of your Memory Walk all the information you need will be in your confirmation email and you can pick up your card on the day!

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Alzheimer Scotland - Midlothian Memory Walk are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
