or

Argyllshire,

former county, W central Scotland. Under the Local Government Act of 1973, Argyll was divided between the new Highland and Strathclyde regions in 1975, with most of the county becoming part of Strathclyde. In the local government reorganization of 1996, Strathclyde was dissolved; the portion of Argyll in that region became part of the council area of Argyll and Bute.
