Handle the falcons at Dalhousie Castle
Dalhousie, on the outskirts of Bonnyrigg, is the oldest inhabited castle in Scotland. Along with fairytale towers, turrets and illustrious history, it has its own falconry. Those of all ages can book a hands-on encounter with hawks, owls and eagles, as well as falcons. Highly trained falconers will guide and supervise you, either as part of a group or by yourself. Dalhousie is also a great choice as a place to stay while visiting Midlothian, boasting a fancy spa and regal bed chambers.
