These toilets are magnificent. They have been beautifully restored and the 40p entry is worth it. The one danger is that when you are gazing around at the Victorian splendour mid performance there is a risk that you or fellow clients may swing round to...More

Visited to use the toilets whilst in Rothesay, didn’t realise this was such a tourist attraction. I don’t see the hype with the toilets what so ever? The female toilets aren’t anything like the males with little actually replicating Victorian toilets. Visit to use the...More

Pay the admission fee (40p), even if it's just to take a pee(k). To see them really is like walking back in time. It's the way every public toilet should be. Why shouldn't "spending a penny" be as entertaining as this?

Only the men's toilet is Victorian. I was too polite to walk into the men's toilet. A lady must have seen the disappointment in my face looking a bit lost in the ladies, she told me it's the men's toilets I ought to be in...More

Right on the pier as you leave the ferry, the Victorian toilets are housed in a quite unpretentious looking building. For an admission price of 40 pence one can marvel at the blue and white magnificence of the gents’ toilet -you also receive a leaflet...More

I guess Paul b has answered the question. I honestly would not have known, as we only visited on a day trip. But well worth the 40p for a wee visit.
