The district was formed by the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, and took its name from The Stewartry of Kirkcudbright, the original designation of the former county of Kirkcudbrightshire, which covered a slightly larger area.
In 1996 the district was abolished, with its area becoming part of the Dumfries and Galloway unitary authority area, with an identical area to the region.
