Central Region, Scotland

The Central Region ( Scottish Gaelic Roinn Meadhanach ) from 1975 to 1996, a region in Scotland. Administrative headquarters was the town of Stirling.


The region was named after its location in the center of Scotland.


The region was formed in 1975 from the county of Clackmannanshire, most of Stirlingshire County and the western part of the county Perthshire.

Subsequently, the region divided into three districts:

  • Clackmannan
  • Falkirk
  • Stirling

In 1996, the regions and districts were abolished in Scotland and replaced by 32 unitary authorities. From the three Districts of the Central Region unitary authorities were formed. Clackmannan was again renamed in Clackmannanshire.


The region persists today, including as Police District ( " Central Scotland Police" ) and as a fire district ( " Central Scotland Fire and Rescue Service").
