Welcome to Dalkeith Country Park’s festive light experience, the magical after-dark family adventure! After the success of our 2020 event, we’re excited to launch Spectacle of Light 2021.

Immerse yourself in the light and sparkle of Fort Douglas and it’s surroundings. From the tree top viewing platforms, enjoy the carpet of colour encircling the magnificent Orangerie. Take a woodland walk and experience the luminescent bloom. Discover the Nutcracker garden and the flickering field of fire!

Sip mulled wine and hot chocolate as you enjoy this very special place. Toast marshmallows and tuck into scrumptious hot food in Fort Douglas and Restoration Yard.
