Woodside is a district in the Scottish city of Glasgow. It is situated north of the River Clyde, between the River Kelvin and the Forth and Clyde Canal.

Woodside has the first and grandest of Glasgow's Carnegie libraries, which were all designed in the Edwardian Baroque style by James Robert Rhind.[1] Joseph Connery, the father of Sean Connery, was born in the district in 1902.

Public transport links include Kelvinbridge and St George's Cross Subway stations.

Woodside is also home to many small to medium-sized businesses, including Breast Cancer Care and Abbey Business Centres.
