The B7026 is a link road passing to the east of the Midlothian town of Penicuik.
The road starts at traffic lights on the A701 north of Auchterdinny; there is a surprisingly long filter lane for southbound traffic to avoid the lights, which has priority over traffic coming from there. We head south through a golf course to reach Auchterdinny itself. There are two bridges in the village, over the Glencorse Burn and River North Esk, which are narrow enough to require traffic lights to control traffic flow.
We skirt the grounds of Auchterdinny House and enter open country. Penicuik can be seen on the right - with the Pentland Hills behind - and presently an unclassified road heads off into town. We continue south then go through a wood to be crossed by the B6372. A short distance further on we reach Howgate, where the road ends at a roundabout on the A6094.
