Quick Reference

From 1973 an administrative region in east Scotland created from the city of Dundee, all Angus and Kinross, and most of Perthshire. In 1996 it was divided into three all‐purpose authorities (Angus, Dundee, Perth and Kinross) whose boundaries are almost the same as the previous districts. In addition to survival of older industries—some jute is still spun and woven—agriculture (especially soft fruit), food‐processing, and manufacture of hole‐in‐the‐wall cash machines are important to the economy.
