Angus

Angus (ăng´gəs), council area (1993 est. pop. 111,020), 842 sq mi (2,181 sq km), and former county, NE Scotland. Under the Local Government Act of 1973, the county of Angus became part of the Tayside region in 1975. In the local government reorganization of 1996, Tayside was dissolved and the council area of Angus, roughly approximating the old county, was created. The county of Angus was formerly known as Forfar or Forfarshire.
