Hillington, Glasgow


Hillington, Glasgow

Hillington is a residential suburb and an industrial estate on the southwestern edge of the Scottish city of Glasgow.

The industrial estate and the residential area are divided by the Glasgow to Paisley railway line. Whilst the residential area is located wholly within Glasgow, the greater part of the industrial estate falls under the jurisdiction of neighbouring Renfrewshire.

The industrial estate was opened in 1938 by HRH Queen Elizabeth (later the Queen Mother) and was the first of its kind in Scotland.

The area is served by two railway stations, Hillington East railway station and Hillington West railway station.
