Blair Drummond wins Loo of the Year

14 December 2017

The toilet facilities at the Safari Park scoop national award with the highest possible rating for cleanliness. 

Blair Drummond Safari Park is delighted to have won the Loo of the Year Awards in the 2017 search to find the best ‘away from home’ toilets in the UK.


Gary Gilmour, Park Manager, comments:

“The Safari Park is a full day out, so the standard of our toilets is very important.  

“We have made a significant investment in our baby changing facilities and in 2017 we installed a fully accessible Changing Places toilet, which allows visitors with severely limited mobility to use the toilet safely and comfortably.

“We have a great team of staff responsible for keeping our toilets clean and well-maintained.  This award is a recognition of their hard work and their commitment to providing our visitors with first class customer service.”


The Loo of the Year Awards  have been identifying the best in Britain since 1987 and are recognised as standard setters for all those who provide ‘away from home’ facilities for staff, customers and visitors.

Thousands of toilets were judged this year, across the sixty separate entry categories of the competition.  Blair Drummond Safari Park received an unannounced visit from a Loo of the Year Awards Inspector in September and was assessed against 101 judging criteria – including signage and décor, fixtures and fittings and overall standards of cleanliness and management.   The toilet facilities at the Safari Park received a Platinum Grade, which is the highest rating.

The Safari Park is currently closed for the season and will reopen for visitors on Saturday 17th March 2018.
