Crosslee is a small village on the bank of the River Gryffe south of Houston, Renfrewshire. It is to be found 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 commuter village. There is one public house and a small public park.


Crosslee developed as a small community around a cotton mill, which opened in 1793, closing due to fire damage in 1858. A factory used for the production of cordite fuses during the First World War existed within the village, and was demolished in 1985.[1] A further mill building still exists beside the river, having been redeveloped to provide office space.
