Angus is an area of approximately 842 square miles which includes seaside towns and the national/international commercial harbour of Montrose. The area also has the Strathmore valley which includes fertile agricultural land and market towns as well as the scenic yet 'fragile' glens to the north which are in the Cairngorms National Park.
