Excellent way to spend 30p to relieve yourself. Right on the harbour side handy for the town to. Remember toilets like this years ago when i was a kid

If you're going to use a public toilet, make it this one! Brilliantly restored to make this a real step back 100 years in time. There's a charge for adults but children go free.

These are magnificent. They are unique to any Scottish island. The gent's are the jewels in the crown.

That was different to pay to go into a toilet but not use them! Even went into the Gents. Well worth a visit

Excellent and well preserved toilets. A fee of 30p to enter, but worth every penny. Beautiful marble and copper fittings. The gents toilets are far superior to the ladies (or so my wife said on viewing photo's).

Whilst on the isle of Bute you must visit the Victorian toilets. Let's face it , your ferry will most likely have pulled in next door to them anyway and you'll probably be spending some time in the town of Rothesay anyway...
