Millerston is a district partially in the Scottish city of Glasgow and partially in North Lanarkshire. It is situated north of the River Clyde. It is also home to the playing fields of Glasgow's St Aloysius College and Strathclyde University.

There are two public houses in Millerston; The New Inn and The Real MacKay. The district is also home to a fish and chip shop, a curry house, a Chinese take-away, a convenience store and a post office.

Whilst half of Millerston belongs to Glasgow City Council, the other half is served by North Lanarkshire Council. The official Millerston boundary starts at Hogganfield Loch stretching all the way down Cumbernauld Road as far as Laundry Lane but in recent times, the area has been incorporated into the larger town of Stepps.

Millerston enjoys a very convenient location due to its close proximity to Glasgow City Centre and has been identified as one of the growth areas for Glasgow City Council. A train station is in the pipeline as are many new homes and businesses.[citation needed] The area has the best of both worlds in terms of locality as it offers stunning countryside on the doorstep along with many pleasant places to walk locally such as Hogganfield Park.

Millerston sits between the M8 and M80 motorway networks making it popular for commuting efficiently throughout the Central Belt.
