    Took a 3 and an eight year old and as a family we loved it. Arrived in time for a picnic lunch. Some reviews suggest not enough picnic tables - i counted over 25 around the play area, with over half o...  more »

    Brilliant park for younger kids & up to 12 (means that older/rougher ones aren't in abundance!). Strict £5 per kid entry -ok for me with one. Stunning place, great facilities & parking-just off of byp...  more »

    This is in an ancestral estate which last year had quite a few millions spent on it. The stuff for children to climb, slide, twirl, and explore are endless. It's not very expensive to et in, and well ...  more »

  • Turned up here today, and I used to always go with my dad when I was younger wanted to come back to refresh the memories.Basically got told I couldn't go in to the park, what a joke, This place has really went down hill, it's a lovely stunning place don't get me wrong but unless you have a lot of money and are very posh, sure don't feel very welcome. The woman was pretty rude rude behind the desk, just felt like I was being looked down on. Not a good show.
  • Beautiful place, very peaceful and the staff are all fantastic, always have a smile and so friendly. I would highly recommend & the coffee is the best anywhere. Superb
  • If your like me and remember it as Dalkeith adventure playground in the 90's and expecting it to better than it was previously before being refurbished then you will be sadly disappointed. All these amazing reviews are obviously all the high class society who's kids names are Felicity and George who both love the scenery! If your kids like mine and looking for giant slides zip slides how it use to be then it shall only take all of 10 mins before your kid has done everything in the park and says that he's bored! What can you expect Edinburgh can't provide anything for kids, even places such as commonwealth pool that use to be great with slides...after being refurbished millions spent, turns out it's the most boring pool I've ever visited with my kids! So be warned people it's a lot of rubbish!
  • Just by chance I drove through the park, a Roe Deer stand next to the road happily munching. Although I didn't stop, everything was an amazing sight. I will be bringing the rest of my family here for a wonderful day out. Thanks
  • Nice wee park with some very nice scenery. Very pleasant for a walk in the sunshine.

Where to stay in Edinburgh

Edinburgh hides a maze of cobbled streets dotted with boutique hotels offering inexpensive rooms and outstanding restaurants. Many of the city's Gothic buildings house chic hotels with easy access to most of the city’s main tourist sites. For a uniquely Scottish experience, consider staying in the famous old town. Despite being in this historical district, many hotels here feature contemporary decor with lots of glass walls and muted color schemes. They’re also known for offering spacious rooms, comfortable beds, and restaurants serving classic European cuisine, with a modern Scottish twist.
