Penpont is a small but thriving village in the beautiful area of mid-Nithsdale in Dumfries and Galloway in Southwest Scotland.
Unusually for a place of its size, it still has its church and primary school, a post office and tearoom, a general store, a service garage, a bus service and an active community council.
Each year there is a week long Gala held in the first week of July.
It also has a rich and generally well-recorded history, which includes its main claim to fame as the birthplace of the remarkable African explorer, Joseph Thomson.
