Administrative counties of Scotland

Administrative counties (English administrative counties ) were administrative units in Scotland. They were formed in 1889 and by a county council (English county council) managed. They were replaced in 1975 by regions, which in turn in 1996 by Unitary Authorities.

The boundaries of the administrative counties were based on those of the traditional Scottish counties, with some exceptions. The most striking difference is the union of Ross -shire and Cromartyshire fragmented into several parts to Ross and Cromarty. The many exclaves and enclaves were adjusted, except for a portion of Dunbartonshire, which lies between Stirlingshire and Lanarkshire.

The four cities Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow were separate " metropolitan counties " (English counties of cities ). This does not appear on the map.
