Dunbartonshire: 55.965064, -4.506360

Dunbartonshire (Scottish Gaelic: Siorrachd Dhùn Bhreatainn), also known as the County of Dumbarton, is a registration county and lieutenancy area of Scotland. It is a small county lying between Stirlingshire and Lanarkshire with Perthshire to the north, its main town being Dumbarton.

The northern part of Dunbartonshire borders Loch Lomond and is an area of Highland scenery with mountains and glens. As stated in Thomas Jack’s nineteenth century Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland: ‘No region in Scotland can boast of finer scenery than the county of Dumbarton; and certainly none more varied, or oftener visited and admired by strangers.’

Dunbartonshire’s history is vast, with centuries of historic contests from the Caledonians and Romans, to the Cumbrians and Saxons, Scots and Picts, Highland clans and civil wars. Forts and other relics remain as memorials and Dumbarton Castle is a particular attraction.
