Craigour is a district of southeast Edinburgh, Scotland, next to the A7 (Old Dalkeith Road).

It is surrounded on the east by the Edinburgh Royal Infirmary just across the A7; on the north by Liberton Golf Club; and on the west and south by the districts of Moredun, Moredunvale and Fernieside. The Burdiehouse Burn flows through Craigour.

Craigour, for such a small area, consists of widely varying house types. There still exist some prefabs built in the 1950s. Most of these, however, have been replaced by newer and permanent housing. There is 1980s private housing in a band immediately next to the A7. There is also council housing in the form of maisonettes plus four high-rise blocks.

Along the A7 road which passes Craigour to the east, are Victorian and pre-Victorian houses, in the form of the Little France and Pentecox clusters of houses.

Craigour has a pub (close to the Royal Infirmary just across the road), corner shop and bookmaker adjacent to one another.
