    "through to Old Craighall. It was on the Spokes map (at least a few versions ago"

    I expect you mean the one ruined/lost due to the Dalkeith Bypass - built through the Country Park with cycle provision.

    It's further east than the Dalkeith bypass. https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@55.9170941,-3.0506935,749m/data=!3m1!1e3

    Thanks for the suggestions, need to get out for an evening recce.

    I should have mentioned that the kids are six y/o so lots of pavement cycling still required - Joppa to Musselburgh, through Whitecraigs and into Dalkeith. However, we decided that, even on the pavement, the road at Whitecraigs was too risky as the pavement is narrow and the traffic very fast.

    This gate is now open -

    In only, though don't think anyone would try to stop bikes going back out (to avoid the down and up returning from the Dalkeith exit).

    No money collection here.

    Pay £1 to visit - refundable at cafes or playpark.

    Think Smeaton entrance closed unless you have a pass.

    Smeaton is usually open. I've been going through that way many times on my commute

    "Smeaton is usually open"

    Haven't tried for a while, looked like there was an extra (locked) gate inside the park.

    Didn't go to look but £3 for 3-5 yos seems reasonable.
