A former public loo in Forfar will be auctioned next week as part of Angus Council’s move to get rid of some of its redundant conveniences.

The toilets on Craig O’Loch Road were closed two years ago, one of nine across the county that were deemed to be surplus to requirements.

But potential buyers will have to be prepared to splash out more than a penny or two as the property has a guide price of £12,000.

Viewings of both the ladies and gents, which still have their fixtures and fittings, can be arranged before their sale by Auction House Scotland in Aberdeen next week.

Auction House Scotland described the building as “a rare opportunity” and “fantastic developer opportunity” in the sought-after locale of Forfar which, without planning or approval for a change of use, would offer great potential for conversion subject to planning consents.

The agents also said it could be converted for a range of uses, possibly for commercial use.

Others the council chose to dispose of to save money are in Arbroath, Montrose and Carnoustie.
