Forgotten that BAMSE was buried in Montrose and were pleasantly reminded when we came to this statue of him.

There is a fascinating book about Bamse and the statue overlooking the harbour is is a superb setting and well worth visiting. Not too far to walk is the grave of the dog that died here.

Touching story of a St Bernard that became a part of the town's history during WWII. Beautiful statue to commemorate this fine animal.

A stone tells you about the brave dog who died and was buried in Montrose. Perhaps he should be looking out to sea.

The story of Bamse is very interesting but it has to be said that the dog spent very little time in Montrose. It did die here and is buried in Montrose, but he spent most of his time in Scotland in Dundee. Still worth seeing...More

This is a lovely statue of a heroic Norwegian dog, and not only conveys our deep feelings for canine companions, but also our bond with our neighbour's across the North Sea. Definitely a hit with kids who seem very taken with the sculpture.

Another statue to add to our collection. Lovely way to find out about the local heroes . Children map their way round the town.

This statue is on the quayside and it is particular well sited as the story of Bamse is so linked to the harbour area. Great story about this dog,
