Niddrie Burn

A section of stream in SE Edinburgh, the Niddrie Burn connects the Burdiehouse Burn to the Brunstane Burn, running from Little France on the Old Dalkeith Road, around the Royal Infirmary of Edinburgh and then northeast through Niddrie and Niddrie Mill, where it powered a threshing mill. It then flows east to pass under the A1 Trunk Road and on towards Brunstane. Its total length is 2½ miles (4 km). It flows in a culvert through the Greendykes and Niddrie housing schemes.
