Sighthill Roundabout is the junction of the A71 and the northbound B701 in Sighthill, Edinburgh, with the two routes then multiplexing west to Bankhead Roundabout. To the south, the unclassified but dualled Sighthill Avenue provides local access to residential streets. The junction forms part of the old Edinburgh ring road which ran westwards along the A71 Calder Road and northwards up the B701 Broomhouse Road.

The junction takes the form of a large squarish roundabout with pedestrian underpasses below. The dualled A71 has two approach and departure lanes, while the B701 approach is wide enough for two lanes and, although, unlined, appears to be used as such. The junction is surrounded by housing, with Sighthill Public Park to the northwest beyond what a new development. The older housing facing onto the classified roads is all set back behind service roads, none of which have direct access to the junction, and indeed those either side of Sighthill Avenue are dead ends without access to Sighthill Avenue either.
