Bargeddie (Scottish Gaelic: Bàrr Geadaidh) is a small town in North Lanarkshire, Scotland, east of the junction of the M73 and M8 motorways, 2 miles (3.2 km) west of Coatbridge town centre. A location in the same area is named in Timothy Pont's map of 1595, but it appears to be originally spelt as Balgedy.

Former Scottish football player and Arsenal manager, George Graham was born at Bargeddie on 30 November 1944.
