A pop-up bar with no name helped create a barrel of fun at Carradale harbour day last Saturday.
Courier advertising executive, Maurice Whelan, Dom Ryan and Douglas Petrie voluntarily manned the real ale pumps and held a name the bar competition.
Next door ahead of its official world launch, at the Glen Barr on Saturday night, Kintyre Gin offered an alternative tipple from a large Kilner jar.
The Carradale Harbour Enterprises Ltd (CHEL) fundraiser, held in sunny weather despite a forecast predicting showers, was not all about food and drink and youngsters were able to launch a boat as well as try their hand at crazy golf.
CHEL raised about £1,000 which chairman Alan Milstead said might help subsidise more than 30 per cent of yacht owners who use its buoys but fail to pay the £10 nightly mooring fee.
Mr Milstead added: ‘The harbour day is in its 5th year and is more crowded than ever, it has grown furiously.
‘CHEL had its own seafood stall selling mussels, burgers, the pop-up bar and teas and coffees.’
