The Grand Orange Lodge of Scotland is made up of four County Grand Lodges:
Ayrshire-Renfrewshire and Argyll, Central Scotland, East of Scotland and Glasgow.
From these County Grand Lodges Orangemen and Orangewomen are elected to the organisation's governing body.

The Orange Lodge had large numbers in Bridgeton and  three Orange Halls that I can remember...Tullis Street, Mordaunt Street and Landressy St ( moved to Olympia Street )
As a child I remember the streets thronging with people watching the accordion and flute bands go by......
there were two halls in Landressy St.
a large old building which was the Masonic hall and another building which was the Greenhead Barrowfield church hall then it became the Apprentice Boys Hall in which  Orange Lodges met It became the Keystane Pub.
now closed.

At the time of writing July 2004 there are two Orange Halls in Bridgeton : Tullis St and Olympia St.
