The village was once on the main road between Stirling and Perth, but has now been bypassed by the A9. The main street now looks sadly abandoned, a reminder to the local business community of lost trade. The village Burn runs between the two parallel streets, the west end disappearing to the distant views of Ben Vorlich and Stuc a' Chroin.

Blackford has successfully avoided becoming a ghost town since the opening of the A9 bypass. This has been due to three main drinks producers now based in the village. At the east end is the large Highland Spring works, at the west end the currently mothballed Tullibardine distillery owned by Whyte and Mackay, and in the middle, the latest to arrive is Gleneagles Spring Waters.
