TGO – Glen Prosen
I left Kilbo at a reasonable hour and wandered down the glen. There’s very little route choice here – just follow the track which joins a road. Its a beautiful glen, spoiled only by a very aggressive farm dog and his slightly more diffident pal. Make no bones about it, this dog will take a chunk out of you if you turned your back. We left him in charge of the road outside the farm, feeling very proud of himself for seeing us off. I suspect that sooner or later, this pooch will get his boss into serious trouble.
As I came to Dykehead, we were chased for a seat on a bench by some veteran ramblers from Montrose, who seemed desperate for a chat. being from Montrose, of course, they were well aware of the walk I was doing. I think, maybe , I may have overdid the banter… I plodded into town where I was met by the Knipe clan, including a very ecstatic superdawg. We had a dinner at the Thrums Hotel and they all went off to Johnshaven, leaving me to a shower and a night in the bar with me maps. Another shower – that’s three altogether. And a bed! A real bed…! With a telly…!
Today’s picture is from Martin Banfield. Thanks again….

I used to have my pet dog Bruno with me (in the front page pic). he was Superdawg but he died. Now I have Lucky the pup. He's a bit like Bruno, only smaller and more suspicious.
