Gilmerton Road Roundabout is a semi-rural junction on the A7 Eskbank Bypass, just south of the Edinburgh City Bypass, the A720. Dobbie's Garden Centre and Edinburgh Butterfly and Insect World lie to the west, while the remaining land surrounding the junction is largely fields. Two of the four turn-offs lead up to the A720 while the other two go through or around Eskbank to the southeast. The junction is therefore a fairly simple 4-arm roundabout built in 1991 as part of the Eskbank Bypass. All four arms just have single approach and departure lanes, with the circulatory lane wide enough for two vehicles. Before the bypass opened, the A7 ran at right angles to its current line through the junction, following what is now the A772 out of Edinburgh and then the B6392 into Eskbank and Dalkeith.
