Riddrie is a housing estate in Glasgow's east end. It is bordered to the east by Ruchazie, to the west by Germiston, to the south by Carntyne and to the north by Blackhill. It is a fairly affluent area. Much of the housing stock were cottage flats or tenements built by the council after the Housing Act 1925 which also resulted in the creation of nearby Calton and Blackhill. However, most of these have since been bought and are now privately owned.
