Kyle and Carrick ('A' Chùil agus a' Charraig' in Scottish Gaelic) was one of nineteen local government districts in the Strathclyde region of Scotland from 1975 to 1996.
The district was formed by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 from part of the former county of Ayrshire, namely:
The district council's headquarters were in Ayr.
The district was abolished in 1996 by the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994 which replaced regions and districts with unitary council areas. South Ayrshire council area was formed with identical boundaries to Kyle and Carrick District.
Because of the fairly short and modern existence of this district, no material of genealogical interest has been attached to it. Refer to the county of Ayrshire and the parishes within it.
