The other nine constituencies of the Glasgow region are Glasgow Baillieston, Glasgow Cathcart, Glasgow Govan, Glasgow Kelvin, Glasgow Maryhill, Glasgow Pollok, Glasgow Rutherglen, Glasgow Shettleston and Glasgow Springburn.
The Glasgow Anniesland 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 the area's north-western boundary. It is west of the Maryhill constituency and north of the Kelvin constituency, which are also entirely within the city area..
