The Anchorage Bar is now long gone. A new housing estate now occupies this site. A real gentleman Mr Tam Waters ran this pub for a few years before it was demolished. Mr Waters went on to successfuly run a pub in Balornock for years. The old mahogany bar survived until the late 1980s when the bar was gutted it closed shortly afterwards.
