A former industrial village in Old Monkland parish, North Lanarkshire, which now forms a southern suburb of Coatbridge, Langloan lies between Kirkwood and Dundyvan, a quarter-mile (0.5 km) southwest of the town centre. Coal had been mined hereabouts for some time, but the village was developed on the southeastern policies of Drumpellier House in association with the construction of the Langloan Iron Works in 1841. Steel and chemicals were also manufactured here and the Victoria Tube Works was built to the south of the Luggie Burn in 1879. There is still a railway junction here but Langloan Railway Station operated between 1866 and 1966, with the nearest station now Kirkwood, a quarter-mile (0.4 km) to the west on the same line. The area benefits from a primary school and a running track (Coatbridge Outdoor Sports Centre).

Poet and essayist Janet Hamilton died here in 1873.
