      No other connection looks very likely, so there is a very good chance this Margaert Laure, daughter of John Lawrie and Jean Duncan, is the wife of Robert Maclaren and Andrew Liddel and my 3xgreat grandmother.

      On 24 November 1797 Andrew Liddell, Schoolmaster at Bainsford, and Margaret Laurie his spouse were seised in 6 falls of ground which were part of the lands of Mungall (Stirlingshire Particular Register of Sasines Vol. 34, page 526). Margaret Laurie can sell the land after the death of her husband Andrew Liddell 'if she should be under the necessity of so doing for her own and the child or children procreated of the marriage between her and the said Andrew Liddell their support & upbringing but not otherwise'. This could be taken as an indication that she had children by a first marriage.
      ...
      The birth of Andrew Liddell was entered in the Falkirk parish registers:
      20th (December 1789)
      (Child). Andrew lawl,
      (Parents)Andrew Liddell
      Margaret Lawrie
      (Witnesses) John Robertson
      Daniel Miller
      Born lst Current.
      ...
      found in the parish of Larbert
      “June 10th 1786 Andrew Liddle & Margaret Laurie both in this parish gave up their names for proclamation”.

      Andrew Liddell also makes bequests to the children of the late Andrew Renny, Sawyer at Carron, and of his first wife, Margaret McLaren who was Andrew Liddell's sister uterine..
      (This Andrew Liddle is the son of Andrew Liddle (school master) and Margaret Lawrie. The Margaret Maclaren mentioned is daugter of Margaret Lawrie by her first marriage, and is Andrew Rennie's wife. She is also the sister of Robert Maclaren of Bainsford. Therefore Andrew Renny is both Andrew Liddell’s and Robert Maclaren & Margaret Shaw’s brother–in-law.)

      "Bardowie, as you will observe, is a spacious lochlet of about seventy acres in superficial extent, its irregular margin being adorned with picturesque clumps of trees, intersected here and there by patches of fresh green pasture land, while its immediate circumference is girt with a profusion of rank aquatic vegetation. Finely situated on its north-east side, and embowered among foliage, is Bardowie House, an edifice of moderate size, and somewhat timeworn, yet withal wearing an appearance of quiet cosieness and comfort."
      From Rambles Round Glasgow -Baldernock and Balmore at http://www.electricscotland.com/history/glasgow/baldernock.htm

      Not clear if this is about Bardowie House or Bardowie Castle, or if they are the same place. Bardowie Castle is also refered to as a tower house.
      In his Rambles Round Glasgow, published in 1854, Hugh Macdonald wrote enthusiastically about Bardowie Parish. Bardowie Loch he described as ‘Bardowie the Beautiful’ and asked ‘if a glance of it would not more than repay thee for a summer day’s journey’. Bardowie Castle was ‘an edifice of moderate size, somewhat timeworn, yet withal wearing an appearance of quiet cosiness and comfort’. from http://www.eastdunbarton.gov.uk/Web%20Site/Live/EDWebLive.nsf/LU-AllContent/PBAD-5JUM4V?OpenDocument

      Bardowie Castle, photographed in 1870 by Thomas Annan. The castle was built in 1566 and remains standing in 2004 on Bardowie Loch near Milngavie.
      The castle was once a stronghold of the Galbraiths and passed in the 15th century to the Hamiltons of Bardowie. When Annan took this photograph it was the property of John Buchanan Hamilton. The author of The Old Country Houses of the Old Glasgow Gentry noted in 1870 that, although the Hamiltons had little connection with Glasgow, many prominent Glaswegians had lived there as tenants.

      "Bardowie House on the shore of Bardowle Loch is an early 16th century tower house with 18th and 19th century additions [Fig. 19]. It is situated just outside the town of Milngavie but separated from it since it was in Stirlingshire and Milngavie was in Dunbartonshire. It is some six miles from Glasgow but is still completely rural and at that time would be even more so, though there was in 1870 a proposed scheme for feuing out the opposite fig. 6.3 Bardowie Castle & Bardowie Loch side of the loch.
      This came to nothing. (47) The owners were a branch of the Buchanan Hamilton family but they had never lived in the house and it was leased to several Glasgow businessmen in succession." from http://www.bellsglasgowpottery.com/fileuploads/Bells%20Chapter%2006.pdf
