Crookston (Scottish Gaelic: Baile Cruic, Scots: Cruixtoun) is a residential suburb on the southwestern edge of the city of Glasgow, Scotland.
Formerly a village in its own right, Crookston (Middle Scots: Crocis toune) and its surrounding lands and castle (Dùn Cruic in Scottish Gaelic), were named after the feudal Norman lord, Robert Croc, who was given the Levern valley in Renfrewshire by King David I of Scotland in 1170.
In the 1920s, Crookston, together with neighbouring Cardonald, Hillington and Halfway, was annexed by the expanding city of Glasgow. Crookston now lies just within Glasgow's present-day boundary with Ralston, Renfrewshire.
