Clackmannan was a district council area which existed from 1975 to 1996. It was one of three district councils that delivered a range of local level services within the wider area of Central Region which over this period was one of the 12 regions into which Scotland was divided.
Clackmannan District took over the boundaries of the traditional county of Clackmannanshire and significant settlements included Alloa and Clackmannan, plus a line of villages running along the foot of the Ochils including Alva, Tillicoulty and Dollar. It was bordered by the districts of Stirling in Central, Perth & Kinross in Tayside, and Dunfermline in Fife.
When regions and districts disappeared from the scene in a major reorganisation of Scottish local government in 1996, the district council area of Clackmannan became the unitary council area of Clackmannanshire, one of the 32 unitary council areas into which Scotland has since been divided.
