Stewartry is a committee area in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland.

Stewartry 1975-date

It was formerly (1975-96) one of four local government districts in the Dumfries and Galloway Region of Scotland.[1]

The district was formed by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, and takes its name from The Stewartry of Kirkcudbright, an alternative name for the historic county of Kirkcudbrightshire, which covers a larger area than the district.

In 1996 the district was abolished, with its area becoming a committee area of the Dumfries and Galloway unitary authority area, with identical boundaries to the district.
