Garrowhill (Scots: Garraehill or Garrahull, Scottish Gaelic: An Cnoc Garbh) is a residential area within the wider Baillieston suburb of Glasgow, Scotland. It is situated approximately 7 miles (11 km) east of the city centre.
Garrowhill was developed as a residential area in the mid-1930s, built as a housing development neighbouring the then village of Baillieston.
During the slum clearances in the 60's Garrowhil grew as council housing and estates were built in the area as large work was being done building the neighbouring area of Easterhouse where many people were moved from the inner city tenements into both Garrowhil and Easterhouse.
Garrowhill was brought within Glasgow's city boundaries in 1975 along with Baillieston, under the terms of the Local Government (Scotland) Act, 1973.
Although sometimes considered separate from Baillieston, Garrowhill along with Swinton and Barrachnie are within the Baillieston Ward of Glasgow City Council.
