Join us for a gentle stroll around the beautiful Dalkeith Country Park.
Take the shorter 3km walk for a gentle stroll around the beautiful park which is suitable for Memory Walkers of all ages including pushchairs and wheelchairs. The longer 5km walk will take you further into the park. You'll take in the sights of the beautiful scenery around the River Esk. Please note all routes and distances are subject to change.
There will be exciting activities to keep you entertained prior to the walk starting.
Whilst enjoying the fun activities please take the opportunity to take time and think of those you are walking for by completing your 'I'm Walking For' signs and adding a loving memory to our Memory Wall.
