Streetwise: Mid Craigie

Name Plate

Craigie, or craggy, bank slopes down to the river, but the ’Mid” part is not in the middle of the bank or anything like it. It is, if anything, behind Craigiebank.

The names comes because there were once three farms stretching out along the crag, and what is now the housing scheme is on the middle one on the way east. The three farms were: Old Craigie, Milton of Craigie and Strips of Craigie.
