Straiton Junction is a junction on the City of Edinburgh Bypass. A modified dumbell, with the slips to and from the westbound carriageway not meeting the A701 at a roundabout - that southern roundabout instead being a teardrop further south at the B702.

The junction lies on the main route from Edinburgh to the dormitory town of Penicuik, but perhaps more important today are the retail park and other warehouse stores immediately to the south of the junction, including Ikea and Costco.
