Who are we?
Angus Archives is the archive of Angus Council and the repository for the records of the former burghs of Angus (Arbroath, Brechin, Carnoustie, Forfar, Kirriemuir, Montrose and Monifieth) Angus County Council and for private papers of all types and ages including letters from J M Barrie, an account of a pirate attack on Arbroath, a court martial of a Brechin soldier in India, and a death warrant for a Montrose murderess.
What do we do?
Angus Archives was established in 1989 to collect, record and preserve all archive material and photographs relating to the Angus area. We catalogue these collections and make them available to all who may need them. These include Angus Council staff, researchers, local history groups, family historians and school parties and authors amongst others.
Angus Archives is always delighted to accept donations of archival material and photographs relating to the Angus area, Angus people, businesses or societies.
Where are we?
Angus Archives is located in a beautiful rural setting at the Hunter Library, Restenneth priory, just 2 miles outside Forfar. We are adjacent to the ruined 12th century Restenneth Priory, burial site of a son of Robert the Bruce.
