Stirlingshire or Stirling, former county, central Scotland. Under the Local Government Act of 1973, Stirlingshire was divided between the new Central and Strathclyde regions. In the local government reorganization of 1996, the Central and Strathclyde regions were dissolved and the council area of Stirling was created in part from the portion of Stirlingshire that had been assigned to the Central region.
