Muirhead is a small rural community situated between Glasgow and Cumbernauld.

Always closely linked with neighbouring Chryston, the village of Muirhead was located on a crossroads between the Stirling - Glasgow road and from Kirkintilloch to the south. 

It was most likely due to its location on this busy route that the town grew, as a stopping point for travellers, mostly walking with some travelling on horses. The name of Muirhead derives from Scottish Gaelic 'Ceann a' Mhonaidh'.
