North Lanarkshire

North Lanarkshire (Siorrachd Lannraig a Tuath in Gaelic) is one of 32 council areas in Scotland. It borders onto the north east of the City of Glasgow and contains much of Glasgow's suburbs and commuter towns and villages. It also borders Falkirk, East Dunbartonshire, West Lothian and South Lanarkshire. The council covers parts of the former counties of Lanarkshire, Dunbartonshire, and Stirlingshire.

The area was formed in 1996, largely from the Cumbernauld and Kilsyth, Motherwell and Monklands districts.
