Cumnock and Doon Valley ('Cumnag agus Srath Dhùin' in Scottish Gaelic) was one of nineteen local government districts in the Strathclyde region of Scotland from 1973 to 1996.

The district was created by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973 from part of the county of Ayr, namely:

The district council's headquarters were at Lugar, near Cumnock.

The district was abolished in 1996 by the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994, when the regions and districts were replaced by unitary council areas. The area of Cumnock and Doon Valley District was merged with that of Kilmarnock and Loudoun to form East Ayrshire.
