The town itself only 15 mintues to the Capital City of Edinburgh, Roslyn Chapel, Dalhousie Castle and Crichton Castle. Dalkeith is also an excellent starting point to visit The Scottish Borders, where many of the Great Houses are located as well as Floors Castle.
Dalkeith can offer everything from a chilled glass real Ale to a perfect Caffe Latte in many of the cafes and resturants.
