The Highland Region was one of the twelve divisions of Scotland initiated in 1975 under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973. The act abolished the county and burgh councils that had been in operation since 1890.

the following text is based on an article in Wikipedia

The area was created as a two-tier region in 1975, under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, with an elected council for the whole region and, in addition, elected councils for each of eight districts,

The act also abolished county and burgh councils.

In 1996, under the Local Government etc (Scotland) Act 1994, the Highland Regional Council and the district councils were wound up and their functions were transferred to a new Highland Council.
