Thank you Stan and Falkyrn.
This is the Chapel of Ease I had found on a slightly later map 1807 which had more development, so it is likely that I have found the right chapel, since it appears to have been there for some years.
Now to do some further research on its history.
Thank you again.

So predating the UP's then. At that time Glasgow Cathedral was sub-divided for use by several different congregations as church space was at a premium until the Town Council built St Andrews in the Square. The Victorians cleared the partitions away for use by the City parish & the Barony built their own kirk.

 The Barony parish itself, whose congregation formerly worshiped in the crypt of the Cathedral, was the largest in Scotland, under its wing were some 60 odd churches & about a dozen of these chapels of ease. The chapel of ease considered here could have been connected to the City parish?

Skoosh.

This Chapel appears to have been dissolved around 1850 - a short time after their minister - Archibald Nisbet was dismissed "for drunkenness".

John Macleod mentioned earlier was appointed in 1782 and lived until 1831 (he died at Balgray aged 80)

Found the fastii, an interesting book to read through.I found John McCleod but unfortunately the ministry falls under Glasgow, which doesn't help my quest,but I can now look up the minister wh married the couple I think may be Margaret's parents.

Given how close this was to St. Davidís Church (better known as Ramshorn Church) it is possible that it acted as an extension of that Church.
However given that it started off life as a Relief Congregation and the convoluted history of the parishes and congregations in this area this may not be the case.

From what I've found online this appears to be in the Barony parish, a quoad sacra, chapel of ease in 1846 when Rev Archibald Nisbitt was the minister.
