Provanhall is a neighbourhood [1] of Easterhouse in east Glasgow, Scotland.[1] It is named after the estate and medieval house, Provan Hall.[1] The area is to the immediate north of Provan Hall and Glasgow Fort and to the west of Shandwick Square Shopping Centre. The area is bounded by Gartloch fields, part of Glasgow's greenbelt with North Lanarkshire. Part of the estate was built on the remains of Provan Loch, part of the kettle ponds in the area that feed the Molendinar burn that flows into the clyde in Glasgow.

Background[edit]

As of March 2011, the Provanhall neighbourhood contained 688 properties.[2]
