Garthamlock is a suburb in the north-east of the Scottish city of Glasgow. It is situated north of the River Clyde and south of the river Kelvin.

Garthamlock was developed from 1954 onwards after the city bought the estate of Garthamlock House.[1] The house itself was demolished in 1955 to make way for a new secondary school.

The area is now a mix of local authority housing and private stock. Easterhouse is to the east of Garthamlock and Hogganfield and Craigend to the west.

The Glasgow Fort shopping centre was built to the east of Garthamlock, partly on a disused quarry and partly on the grounds of Provan Hall House and Park (Easterhouse).

In 2016, Glasgow City Council outlined masterplans for the development of the Greater Easterhouse area (including Garthamlock) over the next 20 years.[2][3]
