"BARONY, locating Barony on a map can be a somewhat perplexing business - for you will almost certainly fail to locate it on any modern map! Today, what was Barony parish has long been eaten up by the city of Glasgow. In the past it represented lands which were to the north of the city and which were, in those days, more rural - they included Maryhill, Lambhill, Bishopriggs, Kelvinside, Possil, Balornock, Springburn, Provanmill, Millerston, Dennistoun, Garthamlock, Carntyne, Calton, Barlanark, Shettleston, Tollcross and Barrachnie. (Some of these cross parish boundaries).
The one reminder of the name Barony is the former Barony Church, now Strathclyde University's Barony Hall, which is located directly opposite Glasgow Cathedral (see photograph below). "
