"Tayside, (en gaélico escocés: Taobh Tatha), era una de las nueve antiguas regiones en que estaba dividida administrativamente Escocia desde que fue creada en 1975 por la Ley de Gobierno Local de Escocia de 1973 hasta su disolución en 1996 por la Ley de Gobierno Local de Escocia de 1994. La región estaba a su vez dividida en 3 distritos, Angus, Perth and Kinross y la ciudad de Dundee. Abarcaba una superficie de aproximadamente 7.500 km2 y tenía una población aproximada de 400 mil personas. Su capital estaba situada en la ciudad de Dundee. En 1996, al abolirse el sistema de administración local en dos niveles y establecerse una única administración unitaria, cada uno de los distritos que formaba la región de Tayside se convirtieron en Consejos unitarios."
"Tayside (Scottish Gaelic: Taobh Tatha) was a local government region of Scotland from 15 May 1975 to 31 March 1996. It was created by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, following recommendations made by the 1969 Wheatley Report which attempted to replace the mishmash of counties, cities, burghs and districts, with a uniform two-tier system of regional and district councils. Following the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994, it is now divided into the council areas of Angus, the City of Dundee and Perth and Kinross, which had previously been the region's districts. Tayside Regional Council directly operated local bus services in the City of Dundee from 1975 until 1986, when bus deregulation under terms of the Transport Act 1985 was implemented. The restructured Tayside Buses became employee-owned in 1991, was sold to National Express Group in 1997, and today trades as Xplore Dundee. Tayside continues to have a joint electoral, valuation, and health board. It also retained its police and fire services until they were merged, on 1 April 2013, into bodies known as Police Scotland and the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, which cover the whole of Scotland. Angus Council, Dundee City Council and Perth and Kinross Council formed Tayside Contracts as their commercial arm and to provide shared services, such as road and housing maintenance, winter maintenance (snow clearing and gritting), catering and cleaning services across the former Tayside area. Tayside Contracts services are open to the public and all profits from the company are equally fed back into each of the three councils to bolster revenue to the local authorities to provide cash for services as a boost to central government and council tax income."
