Eastwood (Scottish Gaelic: A' Choille an Ear, Scots: Eastwid) was a local government district in the Strathclyde region of Scotland from 1975 to 1996, lying south-west of the City of Glasgow.


The Eastwood Westminster constituency was created in 1983, and the Eastwood Holyrood constituency, with the same boundaries, in 1999.

The Westminster constituency was renamed East Renfrewshire in 2005. The Holyrood constituency retains its original name.
