Unlike other contributors, I am anchored in Loch Maddy. I am judging by the evidence.
I prefer to anchor, so the lack of a pontoon doesn't bother me personally, but knowing that there are toilets, showers and washing facilities behind a locked gate, shows a distinct lack of initiative. I have said all I am going to say on the matter.
You are taking seperate bits of visual evidence and making them fit a statement that suits your own aggrieved inconvenience.

Your conclusion is that; because you cannot go and have a piss and a wash in a facility that is CLOSED to visiting leisure craft, ( for well known and well well publicised reasons) the directors and management of this local initiative should be sacked and replaced.
Nice. And you think the £2 you pay for your wash and pee will pay for the wages of someone to clean and service the toilets and showers? I was there for two days when it was open and I saw three people use those facilities.
So why on earth should they be open? They are not public conveniences run by the council.

I'm not going to lower myself to your level of abuse, but for your information, when the gate is open, as it was yesterday, the facilities are available to the general public, not just elitist yotties. Absolutely nothing to do with a pontoon which at present is reserved for commercial craft.

I do hope you closed the gate behind you.

Do they have an Honesty Box inviting donations? Or did you get to spend a penny at no cost?

Abuse? Where? Don’t be ridiculous.
