Located approximately 3 miles (4.8 km) from the city centre, it is bordered by Bellahouston Park to the east and Cardonald to the west. The area was historically farming land for Govan, which is nearby to the north.
The area has a primary school, Craigton Primary School, a small industrial estate and a number of shops lining Paisley Road West. Craigton Cemetery is immediately to the west of Craigton and was opened in 1873. The cemetery grounds contain a crematorium, which opened in 1957.
