Garrowhill (Scots: Garraehill or Garrahull, Scottish Gaelic: An Cnoc Garbh) is a residential area within the wider Baillieston suburb of Glasgow, Scotland. It is situated approximately 7 miles (11 km) east of the city centre.
Garrowhill was developed as a residential area in the mid-1930s, built as a housing development neighbouring the then village of Baillieston.
Garrowhill was brought within Glasgow's city boundaries in 1975 along with Baillieston, under the terms of the Local Government (Scotland) Act, 1973.
Although sometimes considered separate from Baillieston, Garrowhill along with Swinton, Springhill and Barrachnie falls within the Baillieston Ward of Glasgow City Council.
The local primary school is Garrowhill Primary School, located on Bakewell Road. The school is part of the Bannerman Learning Community. Both schools are involved with local charities to combat child poverty, crime, alcohol and drug problems commonly associated with Glasgow's East End.
