Lord Blantyre was a title in the Peerage of Scotland. It was created in 1606 for the politician Walter Stewart. The lordship was named for Blantyre Priory in Lanarkshire, where Walter Stewart had been commendator. The main residences associated with the Lords Blantyre were Erskine House (Renfrewshire), Lennoxlove House (East Lothian) and Place of Cardonald (Renfrewshire).

Upon the death of the 12th Lord Blantyre in 1900 the title became extinct, with the Blantyre estates passing to his grandson, William Arthur Baird.
