Camlachie (Gaelic: Camadh Làthaich) is an area of the city of Glasgow in Scotland. Formerly a weaving village on the Camlachie Burn, it is located in the east end of the city, between Dennistoun to the north, and Bridgeton to the south.

It gave its name to the former constituency of the United Kingdom Parliament, Glasgow Camlachie.
