Burdiehouse is a suburb of Edinburgh with a long history. Popular rumour has it that the neighbourhood's name is a corruption of the French word 'Bordeaux’ created by a number of French citizens associated with Mary, Queen of the Scots settling in the area in 1561 as well as natives in the area who were unable to understand native accents. World-renowned for its one-of-a-kind park, which features sprawling green spaces and bustles everyday with vibrant local culture, this inimitable suburb also features a bevy of historical structures. The limestone kilns specked throughout the enclave once served as the district’s biggest source of local employment.
- The Edinburgh area once hosted a large number of limestone kilns, at least three of which can be found across Burdiehouse village located just across the dual carriageway.
- The serene Burdiehouse Burn Valley Park is famously ideal for an afternoon reading in the sun with the whole family, an easy spot to find—just ask for directions.
- The Burdiehouse Mains Farm was built, along with the limestone kilns, during the middle of the eighteenth century, and is world-renowned as a must-see destination for first-time and frequenting visitors to Edinburgh alike.
Burdiehouse is located in Edinburgh between Midlothian to the South, Fairmilehead to the West, and Liberton to the North. Perhaps the best way to locate the area is by bus.
