It was created for the 1997 general election, largely replacing East Angus.[1] As a result of boundary changes for the 2005 general election, the boundaries became quite different from those of the Angus Scottish Parliament constituency, which was created in 1999 and abolished in 2011.

The constituency is dominated by farmland, and includes the towns of Arbroath, Montrose, Brechin and Forfar.
