Your Destination

Dalhousie Castle Hotel and Aqueous Spa is located in Midlothian Scotland, near the town of Bonnyrigg, just 8 miles from Edinburgh’s city centre. Bonnyrigg is a small town with picturesque inns, quaint churches, and a charming centre.
Just in the outskirts of the town is the Dalhousie Castle Hotel and Aqueous Spa, providing countryside relaxation without being too far removed. The Dalhousie Castle and Aqueous Spa is pleasantly positioned to explore nearby Edinburgh, just thirty minutes by car.

From the New town adjacent to Princes Street to the quirkiness of the Old Town starting at the Royal Mile - both jointly listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site - Edinburgh is a joy to discover

You can enjoy boutique shopping in Multrees Walk and a wide choice of restaurants and bars in the West End - or visit the once famous medieval market square at the Grassmarket, which also offers splendid views of the Edinburgh Castle.

From the iconic Edinburgh Castle sitting on its rock above the city, the modernistic buildings of the Scottish Parliament to the educational and fun Dynamic Earth - there truly is something for everyone.
