The world's most decrepit portacabin toilet?

Picture added on 05 May 2008
It is pretty awful! Surely there has to be something better than this? I assume this is the new 'pre-vandalised' model!

Cromarty is meant to be the Jewel in the Crown of Scottish Architecture and yet this is the first thing that many tourists see as soon as they arrive. If I was a tourist I'd probably turn around and leave again. Come on Community Council or anyone. This really needs sorting out.

I made an official complaint to Highland Council last Friday and a site meeting is arranged for tomorrow morning. I agree with you Dave as far as I am concerned it is totally unacceptable. So back me and complain. Anne Chair Community Council,

Are these toilets wheelchair accessible? From the photo it wouldn't appear that they are. Nevertheless, any photo, even of toilets, cheers me up, thinking about Cromarty!

Yesterday, I saw - and photographed - some kids using it as a climbing frame & waterbombing arena. They were filling water pistols, and I told them to take care.

It was only afterwards I saw the clods of paper towel they'd thrown at each other. I now regret not telling the kids to get down, and away.

I think there are a lot worse things kids could be getting up to Steve - at least it's good clean fun!
