Portpatrick's newest lifeboat will be officially named today. The John Buchanan Barr was paid for by a £2.6million legacy left by Catherine Barr, who died in 2008 aged 98, who wanted the boat to be named after her husband.
The boat has been in service at Portpatrick since November 2011 and the station was one of a number visited by the Duke of Kent on his tour of Dumfries and Galloway this week.
