Priesthill, Glasgow City

Priesthill is a district south of the River Clyde in the Scottish city of Glasgow. Priesthill was one of the earliest attempts made by the Glasgow local government to relocate families from the central tenements of Gorbals, Pollokshaws and other districts. Several homeless families were housed there in or around 1948–1950. Priesthill was first mentioned in ancient text as a farm community owned by Walter Steward the progenitor of later Stuart kings and queens.
