Barnhill is located in the north east of Broughty Ferry and extends to the city boundary between Dundee and Angus. The area borders the recent Balgillo Park housing development and, at North Balmossie Street, with Monifieth. It contains both private and council housing.
The main commercial area is the Campfield Shopping Square which includes a post office, a pub named The Barn as well as Co-Operative Food and Iceland stores. Also located in the area is Barnhill Cemetery.
Barnhill Primary School is the main school for the area. While Monifieth High School is located on the border between Barnhill and Monifieth, and Monifieth High School is nearest to Barnhill Primary, most pupils will go to Grove Academy as this is run by the same council, Dundee City Council.
Barnhill was a Ward of Dundee City Council, returning Conservative Councillor Bruce Mackie. This changed at the 2007 City Council elections when a STV system was adopted. Dundee has 8 Wards and Barnhill is included in one named "The Ferry". The Ferry returned 2 Conservative, 1 Scottish National Party, and 1 Scottish Labour Party councillors.
The area was formerly served by a railway station on the long closed Dundee and Forfar Direct Line. Balmossie railway station, on the Edinburgh to Aberdeen line, is close to Barnhill, but is actually situated just inside the neighbouring town of Monifieth.
