Angus Mackay, born in Lima, Peru in 1939,[1] is a Scottish historian and Hispanist,[2] specialising in Later Medieval Spain.

Having spent four years as a lecturer in history at the University of Reading, most of his career has been at University of Edinburgh, where he became a Doctor of Philosophy in 1970. He became Professor of Medieval History there in 1986, taking over the Chair from his mentor, Denys Hay.[1]

He is considered, together with Raymond Carr and John Elliott, a major figure in developing Spanish historiography.[2]
