This article is about the County.
For the Highway Authority, see Angus Council

Angus is a traditional county on Scotland's east coast, including the city of Dundee. In the past, the county was also known as Forfarshire. Today the county is split into two, and administered by the small urban Dundee City Council and the more rural Angus Council.

Georgraphy & Economy

The A92 approaching the coast at Arbroath

Sitting on the north shore of the Firth of Tay, the county of Angus is a largely fertile, agricultural county. The coastal fringe is home to a series of towns, and the City of Dundee, whilst the far north of the county rises to the eastern end of the Cairngorm Mountains. The inland towns tend to be smaller, but include the old county town of Forfar and the former Cathedral City of Brechin.

Dundee is well known as an ancient port, and much of its history is due to that status. It is also associated with Marmalade, which was produced from oranges imported to the city. Further east along the coast, Arbroath and Montrose are also old ports, the former being the base for construction of the Bell Rock Lighthouse a dozen miles out in the North Sea.


Dundee from Fife

A good network of A and B roads radiate out from the coastal towns of Dundee, Arbroath and Montrose to the inland towns and villages. The A92 follows the coast, whilst a series of A roads cross the county from west to east. The north of the county, climbing into the mountains, is less well served by roads, although a number of B roads climb the glens, the B951 continuing into Perthshire, others giving way to unclassified dead ends.

The Tay Road Bridge crosses into Dundee from Fife to the south, but the most important route in the county is the A90, which is fully dualled as it heads north to Aberdeen. As it passes around Dundee, it is more like a suburban distributor road in places, with a series of roundabouts slowing traffic. There have been various plans to address this for many years, but nothing has come of them as yet. Most non-trunk roads within the traditional county are maintained by Dundee Council or Angus Councils. The trunk roads include the A90, A92 and A972 and are managed by Transport Scotland
