The Highland Council Area  is a local government area in the Scottish Highlands and the largest local government area in Scotland, and in the UK as a whole. It shares borders with the council areas of Moray, Aberdeenshire, Perth and Kinross, and Argyll and Bute. Their councils, and those of Angus and Stirling, also have areas of the Scottish Highlands within their administrative boundaries. The Highland area covers most of the mainland and inner-Hebridean parts of the former counties of Inverness-shire and Ross and Cromarty, all of Sutheirland, Caithness and Nairnshire, and small parts of Argyll and Moray. The area was created as a two-tier region in 1975, with an elected council for the whole region and, in addition, elected councils for each of eight districts, Badenoch and Strathspey, Caithness, Inverness, Lochaber, Nairn, Ross and Cromarty, Skye and Lochalsh and Sutheirland. In 1996 the Highland Regional Council and the included District Councils were wound up and their functions were transferred to the new Highland Council. The Highland Council maintains area committees named after and meeting within the old districts, but these area committees are set to disappear this year, 2007.
