Dalkeith is a traditional market town situated around the River South Esk and North Esk which come together just north of the town in the country park. Just 8 miles from Edinburgh city centre and with a growing population of over twelve thousand people, Dalkeith benefits from close links with all the historic, cultural and recreational attractions of the capital, while featuring a wide range of local interests in and around the town...Location
Dalkeith has a diverse range of employment, good shopping and the well regarded Dalkeith Campus housing the secondary schools. The nearby A68 road bypasses the town but is one of the main arteries to the south. There is a good bus service and the railway station at Eskbank on the edge of town will open in 2015 as part of the re-built Waverley railway line.
Sports and recreational opportunities abound with local football (including ladies), rugby and tennis clubs, golf at Newbattle and Kings Acre and racing enthusiasts can enjoy Flat and National Hunt Racing at Musselburgh. Dalkeith also offers huge opportunities to walk, ride or take a bike to explore the miles of the rolling countryside nearby.
