Blairdardie is a district in the Scottish city of Glasgow. It is situated north of the River Clyde.

The main A82 "Great Western Road" runs right through the middle creating a South Blairdardie (99% Keal Avenue, Keal Crescent, Keal Drive) which extends to the Forth and Clyde canal and a North Blairdardie which extends to Drumchapel Road in the North.

There are two well-regarded primary schools in Blairdardie, Blairdardie Primary http://www.blairdardie-pri.glasgow.sch.uk/ and St. Ninian's Primary.

The district of North Blairdardie consists of mostly terraced houses, which were council built and are now a mixture of owner-occupied and rented.

The district of South Blairdardie is made up of mostly council-built low-rise flats of up to five storeys. There are, however, four landmark multi-storey flats situated along the Great Western Road. Built in the late 1950s and early 1960s, they still overlook the entire west end of Glasgow. These multi-storey flats underwent extensive renovation in 2007.

The area is served by Drumchapel Train Station.

Blairdardie Pavilion hosts football pitches, a skateboarding club and various youth and children's clubs.

Blairdardie has an active community council.

The area is within Drumchapel/Anniesland Ward (Ward 14), Glasgow City Council and is represented by Cllr Judith Fisher, Cllr Paul Carey, Cllr Malcolm Balfour and Bailie Jonathan Findlay.

The Westminster constituency is Glasgow North West and is represented by John Robertson MP. The Holyrood constituency is Glasgow Anniesland and is represented by Bill Kidd MSP.
