Menzieshill is an area of the city of Dundee, Scotland. It is located on the absolute west of the city and is immediately north west of Blackness and the West End, west of Lochee, east of Gowrie Park and south of Charleston. Menzieshill is split into two parts: an eastern part of private housing, and a western part of council housing.
