Dalkeith Palace

This town (Scottish Gaelic: Dail Cheith) is located in Midlothian, southeast Scotland, on the River Esk. It is sited just south east of Edinburgh, the Scottish capital.

It was granted a burgh of barony in 1401 and a burgh of regality in 1540. The settlement grew southwestwards from its 12th-century castle (now Dalkeith Palace). The town has a population of 12,342 people according to the 2011 census.

Notable buildings in the town include The Collegiate Church of St Nicholas Buccleuch on the High Street. This medieval church became a collegiate establishment in 1406. The nave and transepts date from 1854, when the inside of the church was greatly altered. The chancel was abandoned in 1590, walled off from the rest of the church, and is now ruinous.

St Nicholas Buccleuch Church remains one of the two Church of Scotland parish churches in the town, the other being St John’s and King’s Park Church. The Episcopal Church, St Mary’s is on High Street, at the entrance to the country park. St David’s Church, on Eskbank Road, is the only Roman Catholic church in the town. This historic property is a category A listed building and was built in 1854.

Dalkeith Palace which replaced the castle in the late 16th century and was rebuilt in the early 18th century, lies at the north-east edge of the town. It is a former seat of the Duke of Buccleuch, surrounded by parkland and follies.
