Penicuik is a historic town in Midlothian in Scotland nine miles south of Edinburgh situated on the west bank of the River North Esk sheltered by the south-eastern slopes of the Pentland Hills. The town’s name comes from the ancient Brythonic language meaning ‘Hill of the Cuckoo’ and was once the site of St Kentigern’s church thought to date back to the 1100’s. A new church of St Kentigern was built in the 1600’s, the ruins of the tower still stand in the town centre close to the parish church built in 1771, as part of the planned extension to the village by the laird James Clerk of Penicuik in 1770, Penicuik was renowned at the time for its paper-mills powered by the fast flowing river North Esk. Unusually the town centre now sits at the southern end of the town as new developments have seen Penicuik grow north towards Edinburgh. The town is surrounded by picturesque scenery, it is a popular tourist destination and an ideal base for touring the Edinburgh area, it has hotels and holiday accommodation, shops and a variety of cafes and restaurants. Penicuik is home to the Edinburgh Crystal Visitor Centre which has the world’s largest selection of Edinburgh Crystal and a Heritage Museum with details on the crystal making process.
