Jenny Lind is a district in the Scottish city of Glasgow. It is situated south of the River Clyde and adjoins Deaconsbank. It was extended in the 21st century by the addition of Jenny Lind Court. Jenny Lind falls into the Glasgow City Council Greater Pollok ward [dead link] and borders on the East Renfrewshire council region.
Before housing was constructed in the area the land was used primarily for farming and was part of the Maxwell family's Pollok Estate. An area of land which is located between present day Deaconsbank and Jenny Lind is featured in a painting titled "The Clogholes" painted in 1830 by an unknown artist working for the Maxwells hangs in Pollok House the ancestral home of the family. In the painting a farmstead is shown featuring grazing cattle and ruined farm buildings.
