Balmullo (Gaelic: Baile Mhullaich) is a village in Fife, Scotland. It is 7 miles (11 km) from the town of St Andrews and near to the villages of Lucklawhill, Guardbridge, Dairsie and Leuchars. Army base Leuchars Station is also nearby.
The name Balmullo derives from Celtic bāile "village" with mullaich "top". The village name was recorded as Beilmullhoh in 1282.
Now largely a dormitory settlement, it was once a weaving village. Balmullo was the home of the picture postcard cartoonist Martin Anderson ('Cynicus') whose red sandstone Cynicus Castle was demolished in 1939, seven years after his death.
The quarry at Balmullo extracts orange-pink felsite (red pathway chippings), and lies to the west of the village. Minerals found here include azurite, baryte, malachite, metatorbernite, and pseudomalachite.
