Public Toilets in the Cairngorms National Park

We want to ensure that everyone who gets outdoors is safe and adheres to Government hygiene guidelines.

Public Toilet Facilities

Please use this list of open and closed public toilets to help you plan ahead when visiting the Cairngorms National Park.

Never miss an opportunity to use a public toilet but if you need to “go” outdoors then please follow this advice.

Please remember to Tread Lightly in the Park, bring hand sanitiser, rubbish and dog waste bags, and please take all your litter home.

  • Plan your pees!  – Enjoy your day more – ‘go before you go’ and know where your last chance loo stops are before you head out.  
  • Pick up your paper – if you need to go in the outdoors, picking up the toilet paper is the right thing to do (it’s better for the environment and means others don’t have to see your waste). 
  • Come prepared – Carrying nappy sacks or dog poo bags means you can pick up any paper or wipes you use, or if you’re feeling extra brave – you can pick up your poo, and bin it, just like you would if it was your dog. 
  • Try a trowel – if picking up your poo to put it in the bin sounds too much for you, then carry a trowel, dig a hole, do your business and cover it up again. But remember, keep well away from water or your poo will end up spoiling someone’s day!
