Mollinsburn is a settlement in the North Lanarkshire area of Scotland. It is situated on the A80 road between Condorrat to the east and Moodiesburn to the west. The population is around 100.

The Mollinsburn interchange just west of the settlement currently links the A80 with the M73 motorway. The M80 extension, due for opening in 2011, will depart the present route of the A80 shortly before the current M73 interchange.[1]

The Antonine Wall passes close to Mollinsburn and there is a small fort at Mollins, 4 kilometers south of the wall, which was discovered by aerial photography in 1977.[2]
