burgh (town), Midlothian council area and historic county, southeastern Scotland. It is near the capital, Edinburgh, and has an increasing population of workers who commute to that city.

Other industries include carpet making, brewing, and printing. Located 1 mile (1.6 km) south is Newbattle Abbey, former seat of the marquesses of Lothian and now a residential college for adult education. Dalkeith Palace (rebuilt c. 1700) houses the Scottish study centre of the University of Wisconsin. Dalkeith is also the site of Jewel and Esk Valley College. Pop. (2004 est.) 11,260.
