Data files of local government areas - before 1974
This page provides access to data files showing the counties and burghs for use in a geographical information system (GIS). These counties and burghs existed in Scotland up until 1974, when they were abolished by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, which also established us. More information about these council areas and wards and their use is available in our Information Paper on Local Government in Scotland before 1975.
