Auchendinny  Midlothian


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

Auchindinny, a village and an estate near the mutual boundary between Lasswade and Glencorse parishes, Edinburghshire. The village stands in a hollow, on Glencross Burn, near its influx to the North Esk river, ½ mile E of Greenlaw Barracks, and 2¼ miles NNE of Penicuick. Anchindinny House, ½ mile S of the village, was the residence of Henry Mackenzie (1745-1831), author of The Man of Feeling, and at it died Archibald Fletcher (1745-1828), the ` father of burgh reform.
