Public showers in Scotland

April 29, 2018

Scotland is an exciting place where you could spend weeks exploring, and luckly there is public showers facilities you can use for a small cost – which is better than smelling for days! Not everyone has a shower in their van, and even those who do sometimes want a nice hot, long shower… somthing you can’t do with a limited water supply!

Here are some locations in Scotland for public showers we have found whilst exploring or browsing the internet.

Most campsites will allow you to use their shower facilities for a small charge. We always suggest you give them a call before hand to double check, and some will also allow you to charge batteries and empty/fill your water supplies while you’re there too!

We cannot garantee these the quality of availablity of these showers or costs, but it gives you a good idea where to look around and who to contact.
