Newlands is an affuent suburb in the south side of Glasgow, Scotland. The area is mainly residential in character. Shawlands and Langside lie to the north of the district (the White Cart Water forming the boundary), Pollokshaws and Auldhouse to the west, Giffnock (East Renfrewshire) to the south, and Merrylee and Cathcart to the east.
It has many traditional shops which include The Newlands Cafe. The largest retail facility in the district is a Morrisons supermarket (originally a Safeway). There was previously a Glasgow Corporation Tramways depot on the site from the 1910s, later converted for Strathclyde Buses from the 1960s until the 1980s.
Newlands has several churches, a bowling club, a tennis club and a park which has tennis courts. The Newlands fete is held annually and takes place within Newlands Park.

The district originated as farmland in Cathcart Parish (on the opposite side of the White Cart Water from Pollokshaws, which was in Eastwood Parish). The working farm buildings such as the stables, byre and dairy were situated at the "Mains of Newlands". The area was incorporated into the city of Glasgow officially in 1912.
