Ballymeanoch is a Neolithic landscape consisting of a henge, two rows of standing stones and an early Bronze Age burial mound, located 2.5 kilometres south of Kilmartin in Kilmartin Glen in the Scottish region of Argyll and Bute.

The monuments of Ballymeanoch must have been in use from 4000 BCE to 1500 BCE. The henge and the Standing Stones were built first. The various cairns found in Ballymeanoch date back to around 2000 BCE. This area was explored by Greenwell in 1864.

North of this area is the Dunchraigaig Cairn.

Ballymeanoch is privately owned, but accessible for viewing. Historic Scotland has posted information boards.
