    A district in the Strathclyde region in western Scotland, 1975-6;

  2. A unitary authority since 1996.

The district united the greater part of the former county of Argyllshire with the island of Bute.   It was also (and still is) the ceremonial successor to Argyllshire, for it has a Lord Lieutenant.   In 1996, with the abolition of the Strathclyde region, Argyll & Bute became a unitary authority, and was augmented with those lands of former Dunbartonshire that lay west of Loch Lomond. Also see Argyll.
