Angus - Scotland's Birthplace

Angus is a beautiful county which is the cultural birthplace of Scotland, where the seeds of modern democracy were sown in the Declaration of Arbroath.

Before Angus became part of the kingdom of the Scots, it was southern heartland of our Pictish ancestors, who fought, hunted, fished, and inscribed their culture in stone. This proud heritage is an inspiration today for the friendly people of Angus, and is the cornerstone of the warm welcome we extend to our visitors.

Angus offers miles of unspoiled charm; of idyllic beaches, unspoiled glens, rugged mountains and breath-taking scenery to explore. With such a rich bounty, Angus offers the perfect environment for a wide variety of historical, cultural, outdoor and leisure pursuits.

Angus abounds with fine produce including succulent summer berries, the freshest seafood, the finest Angus beef and palate-warming whisky. From warm and welcoming country house hotels and traditional pubs to stylish restaurants, savour the taste of Angus.

Angus is home to Glamis Castle, the childhood home of HM Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother and who may well have read about Peter Pan, whose author JM Barrie was born in nearby Kirriemuir. And for those of you who enjoy a game of golf, you will no doubt be aware of Carnoustie, home to the famous Championship Course.
