Public toilets at six popular Edinburgh spots are set to reopen at the end of the month.

Final safety checks are being carried out on the toilets, and once approved by the Council they will be back open.

Loos will reopen at Portobello, Stockbridge, Saughton Park, Hamilton Place, Lauriston Castle, and Harlaw Visitor Centre.

Councilors revealed a £5 million investment plan last month to revamp public toilets around the capital., following a report that identified toilets as not fit for purpose.

Temporary toilets are also set to open early next month in the Meadows, in hope that it will put an end to people relieving themselves outdoors.

It is hoped the Council’s remaining permanent public toilets will be reopened in late June, in line with public health guidance.

These are located in Colinton, Castle Terrace, Castle Hill, Taylor Gardens, High Street South Queensferry, and Nicolson Square.
