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?

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

Had to wait to get in until there were no men in there as it is only the mens that have been done up. Really worth a visit.

Modest Bute was important in the 19th and early 20th centuries as a destination. Glaswegiand sought relief from the city's heat and stench by coming here to enjoy "bathing." These toilets are a remnant of that and as such they are important to see--and use.

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.
