Angus (Aonghas in Gaelic) is one of the traditional counties and also one of 32 unitary council regions in Scotland and a Lieutenancy Area. The unitary council region borders onto Aberdeenshire, Perth and Kinross and the City of Dundee. Main industries: agriculture and fishing.

The traditional county borders Kincardineshire to the north-east, the former county of Aberdeenshire to the north, Perthshire to the west. Southwards, it faces Fife across the Firth of Tay.

The county 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. The area is sparsely populated and the main industry is hill-farming. In the South and East, the topography consists of rolling hills bordering the sea. The area is fairly well populated with the larger towns and the City of Dundee on the coast. In between these two areas lies Strathmore, the Great Valley, a fertile agricultural area, noted for potatoes, Angus cattle, and soft fruit.
