Angus is steeped in tradition and has a unique culture and heritage which embraces visual and performing arts, literature and architecture. There are many museums, galleries, historic sites and buildings to be enjoyed and Angus has a rich story to tell.
The Angus culture is intertwined with the land and sea - fishermen, farmers, weavers and artists, rooted in their culture and history, with an eye to the future and a foot in the past. The people have shaped the land with their labour, and the land has shaped its people. Angus has also been home to many creative, inventive, talented, scientific and notorious people.
Whether you are looking to find out more about family from this area or would like to enjoy a fantastic heritage trail, we look forward to welcoming you to Angus.
