High Ruchill is an area of Ruchill in the city of Glasgow, Scotland. Unlike the rest of Ruchill, High Ruchill's dwellings are not of the tenement type, but semi-detached properties. Also dissimilar to the rest of Ruchill in that poverty and a high level of social problems were not a common feature of High Ruchill. The properties were built during the Interwar period as council managed homes, but many have subsequently been bought by their tenants under "right to buy" agreements.
