Clydesdale (pronounced Dail Chluaidh in Scottish Gaelic) was one of nineteen local government districts in the Strathclyde region of Scotland which existed between 1975 and 1996.

The district was originally named Lanark by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 and formed from part of the former county of Lanarkshire: namely the burghs of Biggar and Lanark as well as the First, Second and Third Districts of Lanarkshire. In 1980 the district was renamed Clydesdale.

In 1996 the district was abolished, along with the region of Strathclyde, by the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994 . Its area and those of East Kilbride, Hamilton and part of Glasgow Districts became the South Lanarkshire unitary council area.
