Maps of electoral wards 1995-1999
Orkney Islands council area

The wards shown on these maps resulted from Ministerial Directions after the formation of 32 unitary authorities by the Local Government etc (Scotland) Act 1994, and were used in elections from 1995 to 1999. The wards were based on our recommendations for district wards in our Second Reviews of Electoral Arrangements. The relationship with those earlier wards is explained in the Orkney Islands section of the 1995 formation electoral arrangements page. These wards were replaced by wards from 1999 to 2007 which resulted from our Third Reviews of Electoral Arrangements.

If you want to find out which ward you are in, use our Your Area search facility. All of these documents are in Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. Details of how to handle PDF files, and in particular large PDF files such as those on this website, are available in the Technical section of our Frequently Asked Questions.
