We stopped in at the Kirkcaldy library one day and I used the loo while I was there. It was downstairs in the basement and I was amazed to find an old fashioned toilet with the tank up high and a pull chain. The sink was also an old sink with lovely fixtures and it was all in immaculate condition. I had to take a picture! That started me on a loo tour! So many lovely bathrooms in Scotland I just had to take pictures. I know I’m strange:)
Without further adieu anyone want to go to the loo with me?
Kirkcaldy (kirkcaudy, silent L) Library Loo
This one is in The Captain James Lang, a pub owned by J.D. Wetherspoon. We ate dinner here in Dumbarton. The gorgeous red glittering counter tops, blue and white tile and solid wood doors. And a lovely lounge area to rest. It was immaculate and actually won a Loo of the Year award last year!
This stunning loo complete with beautiful blue and white tiles depicting Shakespeare plays was located in the People’s Palace and Winter Gardens on the Glasgow Greens. The Greens is the oldest park in the city dating back to the 15th century. click on the link above to read the history of the park.
Another J.D.Wetherspoon restaurant. This one was in Inverness. Lovely solid wood and streamlined decor made me feel like I was on an ocean liner!
This sign was taped to the inside of the stall door in a public toilet in a wee parking lot in Invermoriston. I got a kick out of it. The last linemade me chuckle.
We can’t forget to include some really old loo’s! This one is at Argyll’s Lodging and would have been used by Lady Argyll. A fancy bedpan basically. This was a closet in her bedroom.
Arygll’s Lodging is in Stirling and is a 17th century town-house with a rich history. Considered one of the most important town-houses of its period in Scotland.
But I’ve saved the best for last. The loo James V might have used. This one was in Linlithgow Palace…
On the Isle of Bute in Rothesay there is a gorgeous Victorian gentlemen’s loo. The ladies was remodeled over the years but they have preserved the men’s in all it’s Victorian splendor. I did not see it but Alan Jones told me about it. You can see it and read about it here.
That’s it for the loo tour. Hope you had a little fun! Did you remember to wash your hands?
