Although not a story from history that you might remember from your school days, the Battle of Rullion Green near Penicuik played a huge part in the history of our country, and is seen as a decisive step towards establishing Presbyterianism as the form of governance of the Church of Scotland and the supremacy of local democracy over the divine right of Kings.

On November 28, 1666, the bloody Battle of Rullion Green in the Pentlands took place, the culmination of the ‘Pentland Rising’, which saw the rout and slaughter of about 900 Covenanter rebels by government troops under TamDalyell of the Binns.
