Eskbank steeped in history borders Dalkeith a town which grew slowly as a mainly agricultural settlement. In the late 18th and during the 19th and 20th centuries coal-mining expanded and contributed to the growth of the town. By the 19th century Dalkeith had become the main grain market in Scotland. Dalkeith Country House owned by the Duke of Buccleuch has wonderful parkland to explore.
