Croftfoot (Scots: Croaftfuit, Scottish Gaelic: Bun a' Chroit) is a residential district on the southeastern side of the Scottish city of Glasgow. It is named after an old steading which was situated at the eastern end of the present day Croftfoot Road, where the Castlemilk Burn now enters a culvert downstream from the site of Castlemilk House.
In addition to shops and amenities, the housing stock largely comprises cottage flats constructed in the 1930s by MacTaggart & Mickel and rented out by the Western Heritable Investment Co. Ltd. The houses went up for sale from the late fifties and many have since been upgraded internally and externally.
The area is served by Croftfoot railway station.
