Constituency Profile

Maryhill is a residential seat in the north west of the city but borders the centre at its southern extreme, where it takes in the Botanic Gardens, the 1873 built park which houses several glasshouses.

The housing is mixed. The River Kelvin runs through the northern part of the constituency and there is evidence of the Roman stone-built Antonine Wall. The Springburn area, which forms part of the constituency, developed during the industrial revolution and became a centre for railway works. The largest concentration of Chinese people in Scotland lives here, although they still account for less than 1 in 100 of the population.

Patricia Ferguson won the Scottish Parliament seat for Labour in 1999. She retained the seat in 2003, 2007 and 2011.
