Glenprosen  Angus


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Glenprosen like this:

Glenprosen, a glen and a quoad sacra parish in Kirriemuir parish, NW Forfarshire. The glen is that of Prosen Water, rising at an altitude of 2750 feet on the western slope of Mayar, and running 18 miles south-eastward through the northern division of Kirriemuir and along the borders of Cortachy, Kingoldrum, and Kirriemuir proper, till, after a total descent of nearly 2400 feet, it falls into the South Esk at a point 1¼ mile SE of Cortachy Castle. ...

The quoad sacra parish, comprising the northern division of Kirriemuir, was constituted in 1874, and is in the presbytery of Forfar and synod of Angus and Mearns. Its church stands on the left bank of the Prosen, 9½ miles NNE of Kirriemuir town; and a public school, with accommodation for 50 children, had (1881) an average attendance of 50, and a grant of £35, 6s. Pop. (1881) 175.—Ord., Sur., Sh. 56, 1870.
