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).

Very interesting to see how the other half peed and ....... very glamorous compared to what we have to put up with nowadays. Cost 30p to use facilities. Oh and its only the gents that are Victorian.

If you visit this amazing example of Victoriana, do take your camera! It is certainly a worthwhile attraction to visit. It costs 30p each, and what incredibly good value that is!!!
