Open from 7 am to 7 pm, a day pass to Dalkeith Country Park costs £1 but offers a range of walks through woodland. Just south of the city, there are many routes to explore and plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife. For an easy, 20-minute walk, choose the Wildernesse Walk, great for buggies, wheelchairs and bikes. Likewise, the Lugtonhaugh Walk has a surfaced path.
With over 1,000 acres to explore and 700-year-old trees to admire, you can easily spend hours here.
