The Central Belt is in Scotland, one of the four countries that make up the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It is that part of the country which stretches from Glasgow in the west to Edinburgh in the east, and contains the majority of the population. The region varies greatly, from the cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and the ancient capital, Dunfermline, to the rural areas of the South Region.
