The parish is named after an unknown personal name plus 'tun' which means land. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book as Glustone, here the B has changed to a G. The village lies on the edge of Bodmin Moor about 3 miles North East of the town of Bodmin. It is a hilly area with numerous isolated farms and small unfenced moorland roads. It is primarily farmland and cattle and sheep are grazed on the moorland.
