These toilets are a credit to the isle of bute for the care and condition they are kept in it really shows how things used to be. The whole of the island is well worth a visit and the trip over on the ferry is so easy to get on you turn up and pay at the office you can... More

What it must have been like using these coming from 'The Steamer' and going to 'The Winter Garden'. A real step back in time beautiful and clean.

Not somewhere I thought I'd rush to as a tourist destination but fabulous example of Victorian toilets, lovely to see they have been refurbished and returned to their original state (gents toilets only)

Very strange to have toilets as a location to visit but worth the few pence to avail of the facilities (They really don't make em like they used to) and see efforts made towards restoration and maintaining their viability.

Once inside the building, it is immediately obvious why this is such an important site. On my first visit I felt that it was like being in the Vatican loo! It only takes ten minutes to view and is immediately next to the ferry pier. Oh, it is also a working site!

No visit to Rothesay would be complete without a visit to the famous "cludgies" I have been coming to Rothesay both man and boy and always pop in to gaze in awe.

Answering the call of nature has never been so pleasant so clean and tidy for a building over a hundred years old

Fabulous Victorian Toilets - built for men only as women were not meant to be out of the house long enough to require toilet facilities.
