A location and residential suburb situated between Newton Mearns and Jenny Lind, Patterton lies within East Renfrewshire but close to the border with Glasgow City and immediately to the east of the M77 motorway. It comprises a farm and associated cottages, a quarry, Patterton Railway Station, an adjacent park-and-ride car park and a roundabout on the Stewarton Road (B769). An army camp built here during the First World War was reused as a Prisoner of War Camp for Italians and the Germans during the Second World War. It subsequently became an assimilation centre for demobbed Polish soldiers and then seems to have been used by Glasgow Corporation to accommodate homeless families. It was closed in the 1950s and the site has been redeveloped for housing.
