A sizeable suburban residential area of NW Edinburgh, centred on the Queensferry Road (which is actually known as Hillhouse Road as it passes through Blackhall), Blackhall is situated to the northeast of Corstorphine Hill. Speculative building took place from the 1920s and to the south is the 16th Century Craigcrook Castle. Blackhall (or Maidencraig) and Craigcrook Quarries produced sandstone used in building the New Town of Edinburgh, the former begins just to the west of the much larger Craigleith Quarry, the latter lying to the southwest towards Corstorphine Hill.
