Pomathorn Bridge is crossing the river Esk. It was once a toll bridge and the main route between Edinburgh to the North and the Scottish Borders to the South. As such Penicuik has a number of ancient travellers’ Inns, including The Crown, and the Royal. Because of their location on such a busy caravan route, both these pubs advertise the patronage of many characters from Scottish 18th Century history, including visits from Burke and Hare and even Bonnie Prince Charlie.
