Lanarkshire --  Encyclopædia Britannica (631 words)
It is bounded to the south by the historic county of Dumfriesshire, to the east by Peeblesshire, Midlothian, and West Lothian, to the north by Stirlingshire and Dunbartonshire, and to the west by Renfrewshire and Ayrshire.
It lies mostly within the historic county of Lanarkshire, but the area around Cumbernauld in the north is part of the historic county of Dunbartonshire, and the council area's northernmost extension, around Kilsyth, belongs to the historic county of Stirlingshire.
South Lanarkshire extends from the heavily urbanized southern periphery of the Glasgow metropolitan area, where most of the population live, to the extensive agricultural countryside of the south, which accounts for most of the area.
