Netherlee is a suburban residential area in East Renfrewshire, Scotland. Part of the Greater Glasgow conurbation, it is situated on the west bank of the White Cart Water about 4 miles (6.5 km) south of Glasgow city centre, and just outside the city boundary.

Originally a small rural hamlet dependent upon the mills along the river, Netherlee became extensively urbanised in the 20th century, developing into an affluent commuter suburb. In a 2014 Royal Mail survey, the G44 postcode – which includes Netherlee – was rated as the most desirable area of Scotland to live in. As of the 2011 Census, the area has a population of 4,562.

Netherlee is served by a parish church, primary school and library, as well as a number of local shops. Cathcart Cemetery also falls within the boundaries of the area.
