The Central Region ( Scottish Gaelic Roinn Meadhanach ) was a region in Scotland from 1975 to 1996 . The administrative seat was the city of Stirling .


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


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

The region was then divided into three districts :

In 1996 the regions and districts in Scotland were abolished and replaced by 32  Council Areas . Council areas were formed from the three districts of the Central Region. Clackmannan was renamed Clackmannan shire again.


The region continues to this day as a police district ("Central Scotland Police") and as a fire department ("Central Scotland Fire and Rescue Service").
