Ross-shire was a traditional county in Scotland, bordering Sutherlandshire, Cromartyshire (of which it contained many enclaves) and Inverness-shire. In 1889 it was merged with Cromartyshire into Ross and Cromarty.

The county town is Dingwall. The name is still used for geographic and cultural purposes, and there is a Ross-shire Journal that covers the area.
