Auchinairn is a housing estate on the northern outskirts of Glasgow. To the south lies Springburn and to the north lies the town of Bishopbriggs. The area was primarily developed during the inter war years with cottage flats and semi detached council homes and was extended in the post war years with terraced houses and tenements. This development didnt stop there as private developments since the 1980s have been built in Auchinairn. The area has a relatively good reputation.
