Woodside is a district in the Scottish city of Glasgow. It is situated north of the River Clyde, between the River Kelvin and the Forth and Clyde canal.

Public transport includes Kelvinbridge and St George's Cross Subway stations.

Woodside is also home to many small to medium-sized businesses, including Breast Cancer Care and Abbey Business Centres.
