(From a Dundee Courier feature.)

For David Glass, running a pub has come naturally. His mother told him it's in his blood.

His grandfather was Mine Host at the Volunteer Arms in Dundee's Bell Street, and when David took on a part-time bar job in the city 12 years ago, he knew he had found his calling. He set his sights then on becoming a full-time landlord.
When Dennis and Anne Docherty opened Doc Ferry's Bar in Broughty Ferry in the late 90s, they brought David in as manager. David saw this as a natural progression in his career, with his eventual aim to become his own boss, and have his own bar.
In a popular local, David has made many friends among the customers and was confident of continued support from them when the opportunity to become landlord presented itself earlier this year (2004?).
It's a decision about which David has no regrets.
Business has continued to be good, from the morning coffee regulars to the evening trade, which has made Doc Ferry's a popular meeting place.
David feels he has made a good start in the trade, and his experience as manager has given him an insight into the time and dedication needed to run a business. Dennis and Anne Docherty have been generous with their support, and David is grateful to have such a good start with his first solo venture.
Taking things one stop further as owner does bring greater responsibility and David has been helped by contact with his Royal Bank of Scotland Business Relationship Manager.
The personal touch Bob Morrison brings to the relationship has been invaluable to David. A friendly chat in the street as they both go about their business is typical of the relaxed, one-to-one nature of their business relationship.
But when more formal contact is required, David knows that Bob is just a 'phone call away, for a meeting at the bank, or the bar.

Mr. Glass receives the plaque from Major David Munro, alongside association members and domino player .

MEMBERS OF The Scots Guards Association in Dundee and Angus presented a a plaque bearing the regimental. crest last night in recognition of the Doc Ferry's pub in Broughty Ferry's efforts to commemorate a former comrade.

George Docherty was a member of the bar's domino team and donations from mine host David Glass and customers raised 265, which was presented to the regimental association.

Mr Glass said, "When George died it was discovered that he had no family whatsoever and he would have been buried in a pauper's grave until the regiment took over the funeral arrangements. We were determined that something should be done to remember George and the money raised will go towards a bench at Birkhill cemetery."
