City of Edinburgh

An old hamlet which now forms a western suburb of Edinburgh, Stenhouse lies at the western end of Gorgie Road 2½ miles (4 km) southwest of the city centre. The old village lies in a loop of the Water of Leith to the south of Gorgie Road around the 16th-century mansion of Stenhouse in Stenhouse Mill Lane. The former Stenhouse Stadium, which was used for football and later greyhound racing, was also located here. To the north of Gorgie Road the district comprises inter-war public housing blocks (1928-9).
