The Christmas trees will be available to purchase at the park every weekend in December and from 17 December through to 24 December.

Andrew Elmer, Visitor Services Manager at Dalkeith Country Park, said: “We are delighted to be offering real Christmas trees for the first time. Following the restoration and investment in Dalkeith Country Park, and with the launch of Fort Douglas and Restoration Yard; being able to give our customers a new offering with these beautiful trees will be a great addition.

“We are stocking Nordmann Fir trees, one of the most popular Christmas tree varieties in the UK. These trees are well known for retaining their needles better than other types of Christmas tree.

“Customers can handpick their tree to ensure it is the perfect one for their presents, lights and decorations to adorn this year.”

The trees on sale in the park were grown in Stirling and were nurtured for as long as 12 years to ensure each tree is of spectacular quality.
