Partickhill (Bhrae na Partaig Gaelic) is a district of the city of Glasgow. Located to the north of Partick, south of Hyndland and west of Dowanhill, it contains mixed housing stock of tenemental type property and villa style houses, as well as some terraced homes.

Partickhill railway station closed in 1979 and a new station opened to the south (Partick railway station). Middlefield Special School, which opened in 1907 is in the area, occupying the building of the former Anderston Street School's Cripple Children's Class. The school specialises in the education and care of autistic children.

The area lacks amenities of its own, but is closely located to those available on either Dumbarton Road or Hyndland Road.

Partickhill Bowling and Tennis Club is located on Partickhill Road.
