Millburn (Scottish Gaelic: Allt A'Mhuilinn, meaning "The Mill Stream") is an area of the city of Inverness in the Highland council area of Scotland. The neighbourhood is situated just east of the city centre, beside the Mill Burn for which it's named.

The area is served by several primary schools in its surrounding area, with high school students attending the neighbourhood's own Millburn Academy. Millburn Road, running parallel to the academy, is one of the main access roads into the centre of Inverness from the A9.

The area is also famous for Millburn distillery, which produced Scotch whisky before its closure in 1985. Though most of its buildings were demolished, part of the distillery remains as a restaurant with a purpose-built Premier Inn alongside.
