History

The North Tayside Conservative and Unionist Association was formed in the early 1980s following the creation of the North Tayside Parliamentary Constituency. North Tayside was made up of parts of the former Kinross and West Perthshire, Perth and East Perthshire and South Angus County Constituencies, all three of which had been won by Conservative candidates at the previous general election (1979). The North Tayside Association absorbed several branches from the former Kinross and West Perthshire, Perth and East Perthshire and South Angus Conservative and Unionist Associations. The seat was first contested at the General Election of 1983, and was won by the Conservative candidate Bill Walker (who had been MP for Perth and East Perthshire 1979-1983). Walker held the seat until 1997 when he was defeated by the SNP's John Swinney. The seat was abolished ahead of the 2005 General Election and the Association was dissolved. It was succeeded by Perth and North Perthshire and Angus Conservative and Unionist Associations
