Juniper Green  Midlothian


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Juniper Green like this:

Juniper Green, a village in Colinton parish, Edinburghshire, on a high bank above the left side of the Water of Leith, with a station on the Balerno loop-line (1874) of the Caledonian railway, 1 mile ENE of Currie and 5½ miles SW of Edinburgh. It has a post office under Currie, and two public schools; consists in great measure of villas and pretty cottages; and, with charming environs, including a long reach of the pictur-esque dell of the Water of Leith, is a favourite summer retreat of families from Edinburgh. ...
