UK trophy for Public Toilets

Fife Coast and Countryside Trust (FCCT) has announced Fife’s public toilets are among the best in the UK, according to judges of the Loo of the Year Awards 2022.

FCCT manages 15 public toilets on behalf of Fife Council and was delighted to lift the UK trophy for Public Toilets at the "Washroom Oscars" in Birmingham.

A team from FCCT attended the ceremony where they also won the UK Market Sector Award for Beaches (Harbourmaster’s House, Dysart) and were listed in the Local Authority Public Toilet Premier League.

FCCT also lifted Scotland national awards for:

  • ECO Friendly Toilets (Craigmead in the Lomond Hills)
  • Local Authority Entries, Beaches (Harbourmaster’s House)
  • Car Parks toilets (Elie Harbour)
  • Washroom Cleaner of the Year went to the FCCT in-house cleaning team

The awards celebrate "away from home" washrooms and all entries are judged on over 100 criteria following an unannounced visit by a Loo of the Year inspector.

The judging criteria includes décor, fixtures and fittings, security, air quality, signage and overall standards of cleanliness and management.

FCCT manages public toilets on Fife Coastal Path and inland including Aberdour, Dysart, the Lomond Hills, Kingsbarns and St Andrews.
