Craighall and New Craighall

   CRAIGHALL and NEW CRAIGHALL, villages, the former in the parish of Inveresk, and the latter chiefly in Inveresk parish, but partly in that of Libberton, county of Edinburgh; containing respectively 501 and 336 inhabitants. Craighall is situated about two miles south-south-west of Musselburgh, and on the east of the inclined plane of the branch of the railway to that town from Edinburgh. Coal is abundant, and in the vicinity are extensive coal-mines. Close to the village is Pinkie House, the seat of Sir John Hope, Bart.; it was originally a country seat of the abbots of Dunfermline, and after the Reformation became private property. Although still a large structure, it is evidently only part of a magnificent design.
