The Dalyell Baronetcy in the Baronetage of Nova Scotia[1] was created 7 November 1685 for a Scottish General, Thomas Dalyell of the Binns. The succession of the title is unusual in that, in default of heirs male, it can pass by special remainder to tailzie succeeding him in the estate of The Binns.

The current baronet is Sir Gordon Wheatley Dalyell of the Binns, 12th Baronet. He inherited the title from his father, better known as the former politician Tam Dalyell in 2017.[2][3]
