Penicuik Estate was celebrated as a gathering place for many of the thinkers and doers of the Scottish Enlightenment.

As we know from Sir John Clerk’s (2nd Bart.) notes, his Designed Landscape was far more than a garden; it was created as a place where nature could inspire ideas and creativity.

Surrounded by mature woodland, the High Pond Reserve features a dedicated waterside event space suitable for temporary structures for up to 200 people.

With stunning views of the sweeping landscape and the Pentland Hills, this is our ultimate nature-based venue, perfect for tepee fire-feasts and stunning celebrations in glass marquees.
