Many will be aware that the old public toilets on Harbour Wynd in Lower Largo have recently undergone a striking transformation into a modern home. When I wrote a post about the site three years ago, it had just been auctioned off by Fife Council (who had no further use for the building that had latterly been used as a street sweeper's bothy or refuge). For those of you that haven't been to Largo for some time and might be curious as to what happened next - there is an episode of the BBC's 'Homes Under the Hammer' currently available on iPlayer that showcases the transformation (series 20, episode 51). If you don't catch this over the next couple of weeks, a few stills from the episode below give a flavour of the story.
The images above show the 'before' footage, with the presenter climbing the path up from the harbour to cast an unconvinced eye over the bothy in its run-down and rather poky state. While below are some scenes from the 'after' part of the programme. The transformation was more of a demolition-and-start-from-scratch in the end but is none the less an impressive result given the awkward site. And so an eyesore is replaced with a modern building that opens up access to a stunning view of the viaduct and harbour. Hats off to those that had the vision to do this and thank you for sharing your journey!
