Lord Lieutenant of Angus

The Lord Lieutenant of Angus, is the British monarch's personal representative in an area which was defined by the Lord-Lieutenants (Scotland) Order 1996[1] as consisting of the unitary Angus council area, in Scotland.

Prior to the 1975 order the lieutenancy area was the county of Angus, which was officially the county of Forfar until 1928.
