A former mining village in W Fife, Blairhall is situated a mile (1.5 km) west northwest of Comrie. It was founded in 1911 to house miners at an adjacent colliery and has a primary school and a community leisure centre. Nearly a mile (1.5 km) to the south beyond Shiresmill and to the west of the Bluther Burn stands the handsome 17th-century laird's house of Blairhall which was the birthplace (c.1630) of Sir William Bruce (later of Balcaskie and then Kinross), Surveyor-General to King Charles II.
