Whin Park's public toilets were set on fire and called unfit for use

Inverness's Whin Park public toilets have been temporarily closed due to them recently being set on fire and called unfit for use.

On Friday, October 20, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service were called to a report of a fire at an outdoor building within Whin Park at around 4.10pm.

A spokesperson from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said that one appliance was sent to the scene and the fire was extinguished at 4.28pm.

The fire brigade left the scene at 4.42pm.

Whin Park's public toilets have since been closed due to the fire damage caused by the vandalism.

A spokesperson for Highland Council said: “Unfortunately due to fire-raising the council has been forced to close the public convenience at Whin Park, Inverness.

“The council is saddened and disappointed with the way the facility has been treated. As has occurred at other sites where ongoing vandalism is an issue, the council has instructed an immediate closure due to the site being currently unfit for use. Police Scotland has been made aware of the incident.”
