    Default Public (in)conveniences

    Please be aware public loos in Brora are being locked in the evenings just now.

    Found out when we stopped there last night. Luckily had a radar key to gain access and made sure premises were secure when I left.

    Both sides were locked up.

    Yet they are quick enough to fine people for urinating in the street.

    Maybe you should have left the place unlocked as a public service.

    I did ponder if leaving it open would be my good deed for the day, but it is a condition of having the key that you lock up securely after use. At Daviot toilets they solved the problem of people leaving the disabled facilities open out of hours by putting iron railings and giant padlocks on the outer door so nobody could get in. The A9 southbound at Kessock Bridge has been shuttered for months.....just picking them off one at a time and hope we don`t notice perhaps?

    Any police station can be used as a public toilet.
    Can sometimes be a challenge to find an open police station too

    Urban myth
    You might have heard the strange claim that if someone knocks on your door in Scotland and needs to use the toilet, you are bound by law to let them enter.
    This was even voted the UK's "fifth most ridiculous law" in 2008, according to the Telegraph.
    However, this has been debunked by the Law Commission, which says it "cannot find evidence that it was on the statute book".
    The law experts say the myth may have grown around local custom and point to Scottish people's "strong sense of hospitality".

    Phew!!

    To add insult to injury the Highland Council are installing "pay to pee" machines. 50p admission, no change given.

    I don`t object to paying if facilities are clean and there is running hot water, but some of the facilities are not fit for purpose, Helmsdale being a great example of a facelifted exterior and victorian interior.

    You could just order a new Toyota with this factory fit option. Wouldn't take many 50p pee stops to pay for it.

    I wouldn’t worry if they could flush my Richard 3rd away, just as long as I could deposit it
    Mind you I wouldn’t be keen on dropping it upon someone else’s waste
