He was educated at Harrow School and Trinity College, Cambridge,[1] graduating with third-class honours in classics.[2] He was called to the bar at Lincoln's Inn in 1865. In 1849 he assumed the surname Dalrymple in lieu of his patronymic in accordance with the will of his great-grandfather David Dalrymple, Lord Hailes

He was a Justice of the Peace and Deputy Lieutenant for East Lothian, and a JP for Midlothian and Ayrshire, and a Captain in the Prince Regent's Ayr and Wigtown Militia. His seat was at Newhailes, Musselburgh.

He entered Parliament for Buteshire in 1868, a seat he held, with a brief interruption from April to July 1880, until 1885, and later represented Ipswich from 1886 to 1906. He was created a baronet, of New Hailes in the County of Midlothian, in 1887, and sworn of the Privy Council, in 1905.
