Crook  Peebles Shire


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

Crook, an inn on the mutual border of Tweedsmuir and Drummelzier parishes, S Peeblesshire, standing, 746 feet above sea-level, near the left bank of the Tweed, 1½ mile NNE of Tweedsmuir church and 12 miles SSE of Biggar, under which it has a post office. A well-known hostelry in the old coaching days, it now is only a resort of anglers for the head-waters of the Tweed. Nether Oliver Dod (1673 feet) culminates ¾ mile to the WSW.
