Midlothian is to the South of Edinburgh in Scotland and is famous for the Rosslyn Chapel, endless woods, rolling hills and beautiful valleys.
The Pentland Hills Regional Park is perfect for those wanting long trails and walks. It's just outside Edinburgh but you wouldn't think so as it's still quite wild. Crichton Castle is across the moors and it dates back to the 14th Century overlooking the River Tyne. Rosslyn Chapel is in Roslin Villages and visitors come from all over the world to marvel at its flying buttresses, gargoyles and the vista made famous in the movie 'The Da Vinci Code'.
Midlothian is perfect for fun days out as a family or adventure outings like mountain biking, orienteering and climbing.
