Angus is a constituency which has had a long relationship with the SNP, having been held by the party since its creation in 1997.
But this was all to change with the election of Conservative MP Kirstene Hair, who took the seat from the SNP in 2015 with a majority of more than 2,000.
Voters in the constituency voted overwhelmingly in 2014 to remain as part of the UK but had a higher proportion than the Scottish national average of voters who wanted to leave the EU at 45%, so constitutional issues are expected to rear their heads once more.
SNP candidate David Doogan claims the vote will be “extremely close” between himself and Ms Hair, who is standing again, adding that an election has “never been more important”.
But the Conservative candidate has again put the union front and centre of her campaign and is hoping it will bear fruit, as it did in 2017.
