Budhill is a housing scheme beside Springboig, in the east end of the Scottish city of Glasgow. It is situated north of the River Clyde.

It is situated between Springboig and Shettleston, and is famously associated with Scottish rock band The Fratellis, where the band used to play in a studio above a Chinese restaurant.[1] The Fratellis also released a collection of songs from 2006 to the present day, called 'The Budhill Singles Club'. The name "Budhill" refers to the area of Glasgow where Barry was born. They also visit Budhill Square during the video for Creepin' Up the Backstairs.

Budhill Square is also the location of Shettleston railway station, that is managed by First ScotRail. A local Tesco and Halfords serve this area.
