Baron Kinross, of Glasclune in the County of Haddington, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created on 15 July 1902 for Scottish lawyer John Balfour, Liberal politician and Lord President of the Court of Session.[1] His grandson, the third baron, was an author and journalist. As of 2019 the title is held by the latter's nephew, the fifth baron, who succeeded his father in 1985.[2]

All four deceased barons are buried at the south end of Lords Row in Dean Cemetery, Edinburgh.
