As you stroll beneath the oaks in the rambling Country Park, you may find it difficult to believe you are only five miles from the centre of Scotland’s capital city.

There’s a reason that Dalkeith Country Park is one of the region’s most popular country parks – actually, there are dozens. Here you’ll find walking routes along woodland paths, space to cycle in peace, and plenty to keep energetic kids amused.


FORT DOUGLAS ADVENTURE PARK

Knights, princesses, pirates, adventurers: your fort awaits. Explore the most magical turreted treehouses, suspension bridges, slides, climbing walls and secret tunnels of this brand new playground. Fort Douglas has two amazing play zones: one that’s perfect for toddler play and another for ages five plus.
Our incredible NEW Sky Maze opened February 2019.

And the fun doesn’t stop there… we host captivating and downright funtastic special outdoor events throughout the year in the adventure park.


RESTORATION YARD

Restoration Yard Store, Café and Wellbeing Lab sits at the heart of Dalkeith Country Park. We have Fort Douglas for the kids. Adults, this is your playground.

Shopping in Restoration Yard is an experience in itself, a place of discovery and treasure trove of so many beautiful things. Our mission isn’t to just sell you something, but to make you happy, to laugh, to relax and enjoy browsing fashion, homewares, luxury food and drink, kids, books, furniture, beauty and more. Head over to Restoration Yard’s website to learn more.

Breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea; bring the family, bring the girls, the boys or hold a meeting. You can even have your wedding here. All flow naturally in the gorgeous glass-walled Coffee Bar, Boudoir and Café. You’ll find the Coffee Bar right next to the Food Hall. It’s more informal with self-service and the best coffee, cakes and light bites. Or if you’re here for a little longer, head to Restoration Café for waiter service and the most delicious menu using only the best, seasonal produce. We use local ingredients wherever we can and you can even see our herb garden out the window.

Restoration Yard doesn’t just refer to our renovating and renewing the lovely old buildings here – we passionately believe in restoration of the self too. Life is complicated enough so we’ve created a sanctuary for emotional healing, a space to rebalance and renew the self. We call it our Wellbeing Lab: a welcoming, spacious studio for everything from yoga and pilates to mindfulness and mother, baby workshops.
