Crosslee, Renfrewshire

For the tumble dryer manufacturer see Crosslee plc. Crosslee is a small village lying on the bank of the River Gryffe in the parish of Houston and Killellan, Renfrewshire. It lies around half a mile south of the old village centre of Houston and immediately west of Craigends, although residential development has removed any significant open space between the three. The village itself is largely composed of private housing and exists chiefly as a dormitory settlement.
