Constituency Profile

The seat is a mixture of urban and rural areas, with the population clustered in the south. Hills, glens and lochs dominate the landscape in the north. Inside the seat is Helensburgh - a largely middle-class seaside and commuter town. Its other towns include Renton and Alexandria.

The biggest town is Dumbarton, whose principal industry was once shipbuilding. Now whisky bottling and blending are major employers. Other sites of note in the seat are the Faslane nuclear submarine base and Loch Lomond, which forms the seat's eastern border. The loch is part of a national park and is one of the country's biggest tourist magnets, while the seat also features a number of Scottish mountains, including Ben Arthur, and a sizeable chunk of the Ardgarton Forest.

Labour's Jackie Baillie has represented the seat since the formation of the Scottish Parliament, winning at elections in 1999, 2003, 2007 and 2011.
