Not a great ad­vert

The Arran Banner - - News -

Sir, As a ‘sec­ond home owner’ on Ar­ran and a lover of the is­land, I rent my cot­tage our to hol­i­day vis­i­tors dur­ing the sea­son. This sea­son I have never heard so many com­plaints re­gard­ing the fa­cil­i­ties avail­able.

Firstly my guests com­plain that they have been ‘caught short’ on sev­eral oc­ca­sions and find it most em­bar­rass­ing to have to go into a cafe or restau­rant and ask to use their toi­let, even though they are quite pre­pared to pay a small charge that sev­eral are rightly charg­ing. Many of my guests say they will not come back to Ar­ran un­til the po­si­tion is cor­rected. Great ad­vert for hol­i­day­ing on Ar­ran.

May I sug­gest that we in­vite the whole coun­cil and lo­cal MSPs over to Ar­ran for the day and keep them ‘out and on the go’ for sev­eral hours and when they need ‘to go’ tell them to find an open toi­let or a big bush. Maybe then they will see how ridicu­lous their de­ci­sion to close the toi­lets is, es­pe­cially on a hol­i­day is­land. These peo­ple sit on their ‘be­hinds’ miles away and make de­ci­sions that do not af­fect them.

Sec­ond, come over to Ar­ran for a great hol­i­day with chil­dren ... what rub­bish now that sev­eral swing parks etc are be­ing closed. Talk about bit­ing your­self on the bum. Why not just can­cel the ferry and the big ugly ter­mi­nal as well. That will save money also.
