Shires of Scotland
| Counties of Scotland ： ウィキペディア英語版|
The counties or shires of Scotland ((スコットランド・ゲール語:Siorrachdan na h-Alba)) were the main subdivisions of Scotland from their establishment in the Middle Ages until their abolition under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973.
Today, local government in Scotland is based upon "council areas", which sometimes incorporate the names of old counties, but frequently have vastly different boundaries. Counties continue to be used for the purpose of lieutenancy, though the lieutenancy areas are not entirely identical to the old counties.〔County Directory of Scotland. http://archive.org/details/countydirectoryo1875edin〕 The old boundaries are still used for land registration purposes.〔(Land Register Counties & Operational Dates )〕
