Bearsden and Milngavie

Bearsden and Milngavie (Cille Phàdraig Ùr agus Muileann Dhaibhidh in Scottish Gaelic) was formerly (1975–96) one of nineteen local government districts in the Strathclyde region of Scotland,[1] north of the City of Glasgow.

The district was formed by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 from the areas of the burghs of Bearsden and Milngavie and part of Old Kilpatrick District, all in the county of Dunbartonshire. The council headquarters were in Bearsden.

In 1996 the district was abolished by the Local Government etc (Scotland) Act 1994; its area was combined with most of that of Strathkelvin district to form the East Dunbartonshire unitary council area.
