Scotland wis laid oot as 34 coonties ower the coorse o the 18t, 19t an 20t centuries. They wis duin awa wi as offeecial bodies in 1975 bi the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, that replaced them wi airts o Scotland, island council airts an the lieutenancy airts o Scotland.
Though the coonties theirsels dinna hae offeecial status ony mair, some o thair names is aye in uiss. The Scots Laund Register uises the same boonds as the umwhile coonties, but keeps Glesca apairt an pits Orkney an Shetland thegither. The boonds stayed in uiss, forby, in a chynged form as postal coonties o the Unitit Kinrick till 1996.
