Lanarkshire, officially the County of Lanark ( , ), was formerly a county of Scotlandmarker.

It was bounded to the north by Stirlingshiremarker and a detached portion of Dunbartonshiremarker, to the northeast by Stirlingshire, West Lothianmarker, to the east by Peeblesshiremarker, to the southeast and south by Dumfriesshiremarker, to the southwest by Dumfriesshire and Ayrshiremarker and to the west by Ayrshire, Renfrewshire and Dunbartonshire. Lanark, East Kilbride, Hamilton, Motherwell, Coatbridge, Blantyre, Cambuslang, Rutherglen and Carluke are the towns of Lanarkshire.

Lanarkshire was for some purposes treated as three separate counties—the upper, middle and lower wards—until the Local Government Act 1889.

Local government

In 1975, the county council was superseded by the Strathclyde region, which itself was superseded by unitary authorities in 1996. Lanarkshire is now covered by the council areas of North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire,

North Lanarkshire and South Lanarkshire have a joint board for valuation and electoral registration. There is also a joint health board, which does not cover Rutherglenmarker and the surrounding area in South Lanarkshire. Without the northern portion of North Lanarkshire, this is also a Lieutenancy area.



Lanarkshire has been announced as the host of the International Children's Games in 2011.
