In the first instance contact our secretary, Rosemary Mackay.
The Bee Academy, where most of our meetings are held, is in the grounds of Newbattle Abbey College, Newbattle Road, Dalkeith, EH22 3LL :
Enter the college grounds through the main gate and proceed towards the main college building directly ahead. At the end of the main drive bear to the left towards the boundary fence between the College grounds and the Business Park. Do not enter the Business Park. At the boundary fence bear to the right and proceed ahead with the fence now on your left. The Bee Academy building is straight ahead and to the right.
Visiting the Bee Academy? Why not take some time out to explore Lord Ancrum's Wood.
A wonderful ancient woodland on the doorstep of the Bee Academy
The paths along the river South Esk and through the woodland are a real breath of fresh air!
You can follow the river as far as the 15th century bridge. Cross, and return through the woodland. The gravel paths are wide and flat, with some gentle slopes. Cross the river again by the award-winning wooden bridge at the Ice House. Look out for the giant Redwood found hiding in the woods.
