“Wonderful setting”
Reviewed 25 June 2013

We arrived early and walked along the beach and had a picnic. It was so peaceful and lovely looking out over the Forth.
We joined the 2.15pm tour of the house. This was very good and informal with a very interesting guide ending with a cup of tea in the dining room. We then were able to wander freely in the ground floor of the house.
Lovely house beautifully kept and lived in by the owners.

“Dreamy house and gardens”
Reviewed 17 June 2012 via mobile

A great big old country house surrounded by huge gardens and grounds. Made me dream a bit about being lord of the manor.

Reviewed 9 June 2012

Beautiful gardens beautiful house. Staff here are very willing to help you in anyway they can. We had four children with us and they all had a a great day from 4 years old up too 11 and not one of them got board. We had a great time even just walking around the grounds so pretty even in February

“A day in the Dalmeny Estate”
Reviewed 31 July 2011

This is a great place to visit. The grounds are massive which i am led to believe are open most of the year. We had a nice walk through the park which takes you all the way to South Queensferry.
Dalmeny House is only open Sunday, Monday & Tuesday from June to August as the Roseberry family still live there. Great tour of the house which was reasonable at £6.00 each. Tea room does some great cakes & not too dear either.

There is also Barnbungle Castle which you can't get to but can see to get a great picture with the camera. Some nice beaches to walk along as well.
