Angus council borders onto Aberdeenshire, Perth and Kinross and Dundee City. Main industries include agriculture and fishing. Angus can be split into three geographic areas. To the north and west, the topography is mountainous; this is the area of the five Angus Glens, is sparsely populated and the main industry is hill-farming. To the south and east the topography consists of rolling hills bordering the sea. This area is well populated, with the larger towns and the city of Dundee on the coast.
In between lies Strathmore, Gaelic for the Great Valley, which is a fertile agricultural area noted for the growing of potatoes, soft fruit and the raising of Angus cattle. A range of stunning visitor attractions reveal the country’s roots from the earliest times right through to the present day with the ancestral home of the late Queen Mother at Glamis Castle.
For a completely different change of scene, be sure to visit Dundee City. The city has a lively arts scene and a blossoming cultural quarter where thought-provoking art and literature sit alongside cosmopolitan cinema and theatre. As you visit the city today, you could bump into Desperate Dan, circle around a dragon, become a polar explorer, shop ’till you drop, test your senses, visit the theatre, go ice skating, swimming, or have a game of golf. Whatever appeals, Scotland’s City of Discovery promises you a fantastic day out.
