28th May, 2020

At Dalkeith Country Park, Fort Douglas and Restoration Yard, the safety of our customers and colleagues is our number one priority.

The Park remains open for fresh air and exercise and, in light of the First Minister’s announcement on 28th May, from Monday 1st June our Town Gate will re-open for cars to enter the Park once again from 7am to 7pm. Please ensure you adhere to the Government’s social distancing guidelines at all times and stay at least two metres apart from others. Normal Park rules apply – please do not bring BBQs or light fires in the Park and please be respectful of all Park users from walkers to cyclists, dog walkers and horse riders. King’s Gate remains closed for now to help reduce the number of visitors to the Park at this time.

Restoration Yard and Fort Douglas remain closed until further notice. You can help support us through Restoration Yard’s online store or signing up to a virtual Wellbeing Lab class. Since re-launching in 2016, we have been so grateful for the support of all our wonderful customers and incredible team for making Restoration Yard and Fort Douglas what it is today. We look forward to brighter times ahead. Thank you.


We now have a fantastic range of products in Restoration Yard’s online store which is added to every week. You’ll find everything from beauty products to fashion, homewares, games, stationery, books and more.


The Wellbeing Lab is closed but we are now offering online yoga classes via Zoom. Check out our classes and sign up here.

Our mental wellbeing is more important than ever as we adapt day by day to our current circumstances. We’ll also share advice from our wellbeing guru, Jen Wood, a wellbeing coach and psychotherapist, to help keep anxiety at bay during these times on our social media.
