Comiston (Scottish Gaelic: Baile Chaluim) is a suburb of Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. It is south of Morningside and west of the Braid Hills.

The main road through the area, Comiston Road, is a continuation of Morningside Road, and further south becomes Biggar Road. It is classified as the A702 which indeed runs eventually to Biggar. Confusingly, a part of Comiston Road has signage as Pentland Terrace, the name of a terrace of Victorian houses set back from, and above Comiston Road, with a roadway of its own immediately in front of the houses.
