Good Friday will see the long awaited opening of new toilet facilities in Luss village. Luss is one of the most popular visitor destinations in the National Park and the new toilet facilities are a great addition to the services available for the public.

The National Park Authority has provided the funding for the project, and Argyll and Bute Council has led on the design and construction. The result is a building that fits well with the conservation village status with an attractive slate roof and timber clad walls.

The building which has been designed by Argyll and Bute Council’s property team features materials which were appropriate and locally sourced. 

Grant Moir, National Park Director of Visitor Experience and Conservation said: “Thousands of people visit Luss every year and it’s only fitting they have proper facilities when they arrive in the village. Providing visitors to the National Park with a real sense of arrival and essential facilities is an important part of our work and we were delighted to fund the building of the new toilet facilities.

Argyll and Bute Council have helped us deliver the project in time for the start of the visitor season and have built a building that is sympathetic to the landscape around Luss and the National Park. We look forward to welcoming visitors to Luss this Easter weekend. ”

Head of Facilities Services Malcolm MacFadyen said, “I am delighted that Luss toilets will be open for the busy Easter weekend.  Working with the National Park, this was an exciting project to be involved in as we wanted to create a building which was sympathetic to the environment and which fitted in surrounding buildings.   I would also like to thank our contractors DCF for their efforst in delivering the project with minimal disruption to the local community.”
