Bankhead Roundabout is the junction of the A71 and the southbound B701 in Sighthill, Edinburgh. To the north, Bankhead Avenue provides local access.

The A71 runs from Edinburgh to Irvine.

The B701 (the old Edinburgh ring road) runs from Gilmerton to Barnton. It multiplexes with the A71 for a short section east of the roundabout.

The junction is in the form of a four-way roundabout with pedestrian underpasses connecting the four corners. The junction is located in a rather unattractive commercial area, with Sighthill industrial estate to the north. There is housing to the south, and St Nicholas Parish Church stands on one corner.

According to OS maps, the junction has been there in some form at least since 1923.
