West Dunbartonshire ( Gaelic Siorrachd Dhùn Bhreatainn an Iar ) is one of 32  Council Areas in Scotland . It borders Argyll and Bute , Stirling , East Dunbartonshire , Glasgow and Renfrewshire .

The largest place is Clydebank , but the administrative center is Dumbarton . Note that the city is spelled with an 'm' but the district and traditional county are spelled with an 'n'. These variations are due to the translation from Gaelic into English (Dùn Breatainn became Dumbarton, Siorrachd Dhùn Bhreatainn became Dunbartonshire ).
