The Scottish town of Falkirk is situated near the western end of the Firth of Forth, between Edinburgh and Glasgow. Since 1975, Falkirk has been in the District of Falkirk, a unitary authority since 1996, but prior to then one of the three districts of the now defunct Central Region. Prior to 1975, Falkirk was situated within the traditional county of Stirlingshire.
