- In 1996, the then new unitary Highland Council adopted the areas of the eight districts of the former two-tier Highland region as management areas, and each management area was represented, initially, by area committees consisting of councillors elected from areas (groups of wards) corresponding to the management areas, but changes to ward boundaries in 1999 created a mismatch between committee areas and management areas. In 2007, following further changes to ward boundaries, the area committees were abolished and the council created a new more centralised management structure. The former districts were: Badenoch and Strathspey, Caithness, Inverness, Lochaber, Nairn, Ross and Cromarty, Skye and Lochalsh, and Sutherland
