Swinton is an eastern suburb of the Scottish city of Glasgow, north of the areas of Baillieston and Garrowhill and is now concurrent with the nineteenth century Easterhouse village. Easterhouse train station gives direct access to the centre of Glasgow.
The hamlet of Swinton began to emerge with the building of cotton hand loom weavers' cottages in the early 1790s.
