Crosslee is a small village lying on the bank of the River Gryffe in the parish of Houston and Killellan, Renfrewshire. It lies around half a mile south of the old village centre of Houston and immediately west of Craigends, although residential development has removed any significant open space between the three.
Crosslee developed as a small community around a cotton mill, which opened in 1793, closing due to fire damage in 1858. A factory used for the production of cordite fuses during the First World War existed within the village, and was demolished in 1985. A further mill building still exists beside the river, having been redeveloped to provide office space.
