People from across the community came together to raise a glass in memory of Campbeltown man Martin McMillan who passed away recently.
Martin, who died aged 45 on December 30, 2019, was a well-known member of the community in Campbeltown and on Gigha, where he also recently lived.
During his life Martin served in Kosovo with the Royal Corps of Signals, one of the combat support arms of the British Army.
Organisers of the Ailsa Bar gathering on February 22 described Martin as ‘a true friend, a true gentleman, a patriotic Scotsman, and last but not least, a Campbeltown man’.
The event featured ‘music, grub and beer, just the way he would like it’, and darts and dominoes competitions helped raise £500 which will be donated to local causes.
The pub was packed all evening, as people gathered to share memories and celebrate Martin’s life.
