Baldernock Parish Baldernock Parish The name Baldernock is obviously of Celtic Origin and is supposed to be a corruption of Baldruinick, signifying Druid's-town, a supposition which some Druidical remains in the parish render highly probable. When the name Baldernock was given is uncertain, but the original boundaries were very small, till the year 1649, when the eastern half of the parish, disjoined from Campsie, was annexed quoad Sacra to Baldernock. The greatest length of the parish is about 4 miles & breadth 3 miles. It is bounded on the west by the parishes of New Kilpatrick & Strathblane; on the South by the rivers Allander & Kelvin, which, here running in different directions, the former east, the latter west, meet & blend on the lower part of the Southern border of the parish, separating it from Cadder. On the side fronting north & east, it is bounded by the parish of Campsie.
Glasgow, the nearest market town is 7 or 8 miles
