New Public Toilets For Fort Augustus

Visitors will soon be able to make use of new public toilet facilities at Fort Augustus.

Members of The Highland Council's Transpsort Environmental and Community Services Committee were advised today (Thursday) that the Council has awarded a contract to Werninck Buildings Ltd of Neath for the provision of a new £220,000 public toilet in the main car park beside the Fort Augustus Tourist Information Office.

The new toilet will contain a baby changing room, disabled persons' toilet and an attendant's office and will be erected as a modular construction unit to ensure a quick build time.

Work is due to start on site at the end of October and the completed building is expected to be handed over to the Council by mid January 2010. Once work is completed, the existing toilet block will be demolished and the surrounding area will be landscaped.

Local Councillor, Margaret Davidson said:  “Fort Augustus welcomes thousands of tourists each year and is also a popular stopping off point for people travelling on business between the east and west coast.  The new toilet facilities will be very well used and a great bonus for the village.”
