"I have continued researching."
There was a Parkhouse Lane, and it does not appear to have been one of the grid streets per this information:
"There was a howff (public house) that sat at the gushet of Duke Street and St. Ann's Place, which became known as Parkhouse Lane."
The term gushet in Scots is for a triangular piece of land, also used when the land is built on, so this pub referred to would have been on a triangular corner. However it appears that Parkhouse Lane disappeared from the map probably in the 1950s:
"Parkhouse estate used to be commemorated by Parkhouse Lane, which was just to the left of Tennent's Brewery and ran at an angle from Duke Street to Ladywell Street. When the Tennent-Caledonian combine took over the brewery, they put up a new building on the site of Parkhouse Lane, but the name has been preserved as they have called this building "Park House" and the name can be seen above the doorway beside the main entrance."
