Solicitors in Forfarshire


Forfarshire was a county of Scotland from the eighteenth century until 1928, prior to and after these dates it has been variously referred to by its ancient name of Angus. In 1996 county borders were redrawn as part of the abolition of the two-tier political system, and Angus today reflects the old borders of Forfarshire minus the City of Dundee.


The economy of the region is strong and diverse. Farming and agriculture play a vital role, with fishing in particular having had an important place for centuries. The region of Angus is famed for its beef, Arbroath for its smoked haddock and Forfar for its Bridie, a type of pastry snack. In addition to food, the region has a large distillery at Carnoustie. Forfarshire is also strong in construction, and enjoys revenue from the oil and gas industries based in nearby Aberdeenshire. As with many parts of Scotland, the regions beautiful and rugged landscape lends itself well to golf, with the Championship course at Carnoustie the main attraction.
