Glasgow Maryhill is a constituency of the Scottish Parliament (Holyrood). It elects one Member of the Scottish Parliament (MSP) by the plurality (first past the post) method of election. Also, however, it is one of ten constituencies in the Glasgow electoral region, which elects seven additional members, in addition to ten constituency MSPs, to produce a form of proportional representation for the region as a whole.

:"See also "Glasgow Scottish Parliament region

The other nine constituencies of the Glasgow region are Glasgow Anniesland, Glasgow Baillieston, Glasgow Cathcart, Glasgow Govan, Glasgow Kelvin, Glasgow Pollok, Glasgow Rutherglen, Glasgow Shettleston and Glasgow Springburn.

The region covers the Glasgow City council area and a north-western portion of the South Lanarkshire council area.

Constituency boundaries

The Glasgow Maryhill constituency was created at the same time as the Scottish Parliament, in 1999, with the name and boundaries of an existing Westminster constituency. In 2005, however, Scottish Westminster (House of Commons) constituencies were mostly replaced with new constituencies.

The Holyrood constituency is entirely within the Glasgow City council area, on its northern boundary. It is west of the Springburn constituency, north of Kelvin and east of Anniesland, which are also entirely within the city area.
