Glencoe toilets flushed with success
Campers and caravanners in Scotland can be assured of top quality toilets at their camp site, after two Camping and Caravanning Club Sites were recognised in the Loo of the Year Awards yesterday, during a ceremony held at the Festival Theatre, Pitlochry.
Glencoe Camping and Caravanning Club Site was announced National Loo of the Year winner for Scotland in the prestigious Awards – promoted by the British Toilet Association – while Milarrochy Bay received a 4 Star Award.
The Glencoe Club Site enjoys breathtaking views of the mountains and its surrounding woodland. Millarochy Bay Club Site is on the eastern shore of Loch Lomond, adjacent to the West Highland Way. Both Sites draw campers from all over the country to enjoy the scenic west coast of Scotland.
Mel Hill, Chairman of The Camping and Caravanning Club’s Sites Committee, says: “Our Club Sites have a strong reputation for both friendliness and cleanliness. Many campers choose to stay at our Sites because they know they will find facilities of the highest standards – so it is particularly good to have this confirmed by the independent inspectors at the Loo of the Year Awards.”
Loo of the Year Awards 2006 are given following an independent, unannounced check by an authorised Inspector. He or she judges from a wide range of criteria, including clear signage, the provision of sufficient cubicles and the highest standards of hygiene.
