South Lanarkshire is one of 32 council areas of Scotland. It borders the south-east of the City of Glasgow and contains some of Glasgow's suburbs. It also contains many towns and villages. It also shares borders with Dumfries and Galloway, East Ayrshire, East Renfrewshire, North Lanarkshire, the Scottish Borders and West Lothian. It includes part of the historic county of Lanarkshire.

It also stretches south into a more rural area where farming and metal mining are the more favoured industries.
