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.

Menzieshill is home to Dundee's main water tower which serves the area. Menzieshill High School is located opposite the tower and Ninewells hospital is located to the immediate south of the area.

Toponymy[edit]

Menzieshill is generally pronounced meeniss-hill. This is due to the original Scots spelling, Menȝiehill (cf. Menzies), containing the letter yogh, was later erroneously confused with the tailed z.
