Cumbernauld & Kilsyth was a district council area which existed from 1975 to 1996. It was one of 19 district councils that delivered a range of local level services within the wider area of Strathclyde Region, which over this period was one of the 12 regions into which Scotland was divided.
Cumbernauld & Kilsyth was one of the five district council areas within the Dunbarton sub-region of Strathclyde, and it was formed from parts of the traditional counties of Dunbartonshire, and Stirlingshire. The result was a district that included the towns of Cumbernauld and Kilsyth and the surrounding area. It was bordered by the districts of Monklands and Strathkelvin in Strathclyde; plus the Stirling and Falkirk Districts of Central Region.
When regions and districts disappeared from the scene in a major reorganisation of Scottish local government in 1996, most of the district council area of Cumbernauld & Kilsyth became part of the unitary council area of North Lanarkshire. one of the 32 unitary council areas into which Scotland has since been divided.
