30p to get in and a little underwhelming in their upkeep, but nevertheless they are iconic and deserve a visit and a donation to encourage their continuance.

The gentlemen's loo's on the harbour by the ferry terminal are a highlight of any trip to the Isle of Bute. They may look like any old public loo from the outside, but inside they are a work of art. I've not been in many, if any, men's loos before, but I can guarantee that you have never seen anything... More

Accompanied a friend celebrating "her" 60th birthday, what a treat for us all, what a venue for a "party" Amazing, must visit, great drive to Isle of Bute too.

Worth a visit especially if you need a toilet! The parking to use the facility is quite good and as a visitor attraction it's very novel! The island of Rothesay is interesting and the shopping centre is reasonably good for a small town. There's a very nice little cafe in the back streets and the prices were very reasonable.

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.
