Once 4 houses, then 3, Fiddler's Hall was renovated in 1972 into one house and no longer belongs to the Broomhall Estate. Said to have had rear wings forming a courtyard plan to rear, the abutting stone at rear may have keyed in to former rear wall. 2 stones in front garden with slight depressions may have been part of the once timber wagon way (the Elgin Railway) which ran along the front of the house. Also known as Floral Hall and spelt as Fiddlershall or Fiddlers Hall the houses were built to accommodate employees of the Earl of Elgin, possibly including a fiddler.
