Work is well underway on the new toilets for Luss village.  The old building has been demolished and the walls and roof structure of the new building are now in place.

The building which has been designed by Argyll and Bute Council’s property team features natural materials.  Larch cladding, natural stone, timber decking and a slate roof have all been used to complement the surrounding area and ensure that the toilets enhance the village.  In addition to the toilet facilities the building will also have a separate baby changing area.

The project was the inspiration of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park and is scheduled to be completed by Easter. 

Spokesperson for environment Councillor Bruce Marshall said, “I am delighted that the work is going so well.  Luss is a beautiful village with many tourists visiting over the summer months.  These new toilets will provide both residents and visitors alike pleasant, high quality facilities.   The design of the building reflects the beauty of the area and it’s thanks to the grant from Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Parks Authority that made the project possible.”


Fiona Logan, CEO for Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park said: “I am thrilled that we have funded these new toilets and that work is now underway. We wanted to make sure the facilities not only provided a welcome break for the huge numbers of visitors coming to enjoy Luss but also looked great. It was important to the National Park that any design should remain sympathetic to the landscape and we’re pleased the use of natural materials is being used during this construction phase. I’m sure the new toilets will be a real asset to the village.”
