Glengarry was born on 11 November 1941, first son of Air Commodore Aeneas Ranald Donald MacDonell, 22nd of Glengarry, and Diana Dorothy Keane. Always known informally by his second name, Ranald, Glengarry attended Bryanston School in Blandford, Dorset, from 1955 to 1959. Continuing his education in 1961, he studied Modern Languages at St. John’s College, Cambridge, graduating in 1964 with a Bachelor of Arts degree (B.A. Hons.).

He travelled worldwide as a businessman, retiring at the end of 2001, and married Carolyn Alexandra Richardson on 9 May 2002. Glengarry and Lady Glengarry live in the South East of England.

Glengarry has two daughters by his first marriage. Fiona Jane, the eldest, has two children – Sam James Cumber, born in 1999, and Phoebe Cumber, born in 2001. His second daughter, Victoria Ann, lives and works in the Midlands area.

Glengarry used to sing first bass with a local choral society and has taught English to some of the many immigrants to the UK from the extended European Union.
