Govanhill (Gaelic: Cnoc a' Ghobhainn) is a district in the Scottish city of Glasgow. It is situated south of the River Clyde between the Gorbals, Pollokshields, Crosshill and Queen's Park. The council ward has boundaries of Dixon Avenue and Dixon Road to the South, Victoria Road to the West, Butterbiggins Road to the North, and Aikenhead Road to the East.
