  • Restoration Yard, Dalkeith Estate

    Resin Bound courtyard for new shop, restaurant and wellbeing centre at Scottish Estate

    Contractor Resarf Flooring Ltd

    800m2 Addaset Maple Gold 6mm

    Addagrip approved contractor Resarf Flooring Ltd has installed 800m2 of Addaset resin bound porous surfacing to the pathways and courtyard area of the newly restored Restoration Yard at Dalkeith Country Park in Scotland.

    The Dalkeith Country Park near Edinburgh is steeped in history. The estate of Dalkeith Palace, a stately home built in 1702 on the site of an earlier castle, is the former seat of the Duke of Buccleuch.

    The Restoration Yard, a new development created around the park’s 18th century stable yard, provides a retail, food, drink and wellbeing space for the park’s visitors. The design of the new building is sympathetic to its historical setting, utilising traditional materials alongside new. The contemporary glass-walled Restoration Café looks out over the new courtyard area including a new Courtyard Fountain and has views of the Orangery and River Esk.

    The courtyard area required a natural aggregate surface that would be in keeping with the historic surroundings but hard wearing and low maintenance. The client selected BBA approved Addaset resin bound porous surfacing in a 6mm Maple Gold to create a decorative porous paving for the courtyard and pathways complementing areas of loose pebbles around the fountain and grass borders.

    The new building was completed in June 2016 in time for the reopening on 25th July 2016.
