The parishes of Scotland
Scotland’s 33 counties are divided into 903 civil parishes, originally for the purposes of local administration, which have their origins in the ecclesiastical parishes of the Church of Scotland.
The total number of parishes has varied quite considerably over the centuries as boundaries changed and parishes were amalgamated or separated. Some parishes overlap county boundaries due to changes to earlier territorial divisions, while others became detached from their county as exclaves within other counties.
