Hi Carole and welcome,

Argyl/Argyll and Argyllshire are all the same thing, which is a county in the west highlands of Scotland. Barony, I think, is a part of Glasgow which is located in an entirely different county called Lanarkshire, southeast of Argyll. If I had to guess, I would say that Robert and Sarah were Argyll natives who married in Barony. I have quite a number of Argyll relatives who did the same.

A quick Google search finds someone else tracing this same couple and they say they were born in the parish of Kilbrandon & Kilchattan, Argyll; Robert in 1771 and Sarah in 1781. This area is near the Town of Oban. Lots of McDougalls came from this vicinity, and from the Isle of Mull nearby, including several relatives of mine.
