Path in Burdiehouse Burn Valley Park
The name 'Burdiehouse' is said to have been a corruption of Bordeaux House, after French ladies-in-waiting who in the mid-16th century lived there in service to Mary Queen of Scots at Craigmillar Castle. More recently, Burdiehouse was an area of limestone workings and shale oil extraction. (From 'The Villages of Edinburgh' vol. 2 by Malcolm Cant, John Donald 1987).
