Blairhoyle junction, referred to as Hammersmith Junction by the council, lies on the A81 in the Trossachs to the south of Callander.

This route, with its important sounding number has long been superseded by better roads which whilst maybe longer are somewhat quicker end to end, meaning that the A81 is lightly trafficked at this junction. Indeed, so much so that the A81 TOTSOs here, with traffic for Callander having to turn off the main road, which continues east as the A873 to Thornhill. This TOTSO is perhaps more to do with the route from the motorway at Stirling into the Trossachs, which is often busy with tourist coaches in the summer months.

The alternative name comes from a group of cottages which formerly sat at the junction, named Hammersmith.
