Baron Strathclyde is a title that has been created twice in British history, both times in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was first created in 1914 when the politician and judge Alexander Ure was made Baron Strathclyde, of Sandyford in the County of Lanark. This creation became extinct on his death in 1928. It was created for a second time in 1955 when the Scottish Unionist Party politician Thomas Dunlop Galbraith was made Baron Strathclyde, of Barskimming in the County of Ayr. As of 2016 the title is held by his grandson, the second Baron, who succeeded in 1985. He is the son of the politician the Hon. Sir Tam Galbraith KBE, eldest son of the first Baron. Lord Strathclyde is one of the ninety elected hereditary peers that remain in the House of Lords after the passing of the House of Lords Act 1999.
