This volume in the Buildings of Scotland series explores the rich architectural diversity of Dundee and Angus. Dundee, the fourth-largest city in Scotland, boasts some of the country's finest ecclesiastical, public, industrial, and commercial buildings, including the unique Maggie's Centre designed by Frank Gehry. Beyond Dundee lies the predominantly rural county of Angus, where visitors can see stunning Pictish and early Christian monuments, castles, country houses, and the famed Bell Rock Lighthouse, the world's oldest surviving sea-washed lighthouse.

John Gifford was in charge of the Buildings of Scotland Research Unit from 1980 until 2011. He has authored or co-authored many other guides in this series.

“Dundee and Angus is admirably complete as far as descriptions of the buildings are concerned. John Gifford has done an exhaustive job of cataloguing the county inventory of churches, public buildings and houses. He has opened my eyes to many unexpected treasures.”—James Stourton, The Spectator

“This is an essential and illuminating work of reference for anyone interested in Scottish architecture and will form the springboard for both exciting excursions and new research.”—Simon Green, Country Life

"Comprehensive in its coverage, chockfull of fascinating detail, yet clear and readable throughout."—Michael Kerrigan, The Scotsman

“The scope of the book, its useful format, and the quality of its reproductions makes Dudee and Angus a learned and sturdy companion for all those interested in the region, which it is a pleasure to see brought to the public’s attention.”—Lizzie Swarbrick, Burlington Magazine,
