The Kingston Dock was on the south side of the River Clyde with an entry to the river at the west end. It was the oldest Glasgow dock. It was built on the former Windmillcroft. Windmillcroft Quay was to the north and east of the site, adjacent to the riverside.
The western end of the dock (^B^ end) was rail served, a siding from the General Terminus and Glasgow Harbour Railway.
The dock no longer exists having been infilled. The south end of the Kingston Bridge of the M8 is directly by the infilled west end of the dock.
In 1911 the berth allocations were
2 Loch Fyne & Glasgow Steam Packet Co 4 J Hay & Sons to Northern Ireland, Portrush
6 for general cargo
8 Campbeltown Steam Packet Co 10 for general cargo
1, 3, 5, 7, 9 & 11 for general cargo
East end (known as A) for general cargo
West end (B) William Robertson & Co for London and the south east of England
A serious fire here in 1914 destroyed the warehouses, quaysides and four schooners which were taken to Newshot Island and abandoned on the foreshore. The dock required major reconstruction.
The site was bounded to the west by Springfield Quay and General Terminus and to the east by Windmillcroft Quay and the street level railway serving it.
