Bearsden & Milngavie was a district council area which existed from 1975 to 1996. It was one of 19 district councils that delivered a range of local level services within the wider area of Strathclyde Region, which over this period was one of the 12 regions into which Scotland was divided.
Bearsden & Milngavie was one of the five district council areas within the Dunbarton sub-region of Strathclyde, and it was formed from part of the traditional county of Dunbartonshire. The result was a small district that included the towns of Bearsden and Milngavie and the surrounding area. It was bordered by the districts of Clydebank, Strathkelvin and Glasgow in Strathclyde; plus the Stirling District of Central Region.
When regions and districts disappeared from the scene in a major reorganisation of Scottish local government in 1996, the district council area of Bearsden & Milngavie became part of the unitary council area of East Dunbartonshire, one of the 32 unitary council areas into which Scotland has since been divided.
