For those who are entirely unfamiliar with this area, Penicuik is a thriving township lying to the south-west of the city, approximately ten miles from Edinburgh’s city centre and close to the Pentland Hills. It is an attractive little town completely surrounded by open countryside, which extends right into the borders. In terms of travelling time, Princes Street to Penicuik is generally a twenty-five to thirty-minute drive, except at the busy times.
A self-contained, independent township, Penicuik is well served with every possible shopping facility, service and amenity. Much of the town centre is pedestrianised, making shopping both pleasant and entirely safe. Apart from the extensive variety of small shopping facilities, there is a branch of Lidl and a Tesco Superstore. A ten-minute drive takes you to Straiton Retail Park where you will find a selection of shops including Asda, IKEA, Costco, Sainsbury’s and Marks and Spencers.
The town centre provides a wide choice of building societies, banking, Post Office services and a health centre, which provides very comprehensive services, including those of a dentist.
Throughout Penicuik are a number of primary and secondary schools of both denominations. Just off Carlops Road, at Penicuik High School, is Penicuik Leisure Centre with a library and swimming pool.
For those whose jobs require them to travel throughout Scotland, Penicuik is an excellent position. Only ten minutes away lies the Edinburgh City Bypass, which gives access to all main routes, whilst Penicuik itself is on the main road to Peebles and all points south and just off the road directly to Carlisle, which also gives easy access to Clyde Valley and the city of Glasgow.
