Toilets in a Largs pub were given the seal of approval in this year's Loo of the Year Awards. 

The bogs in The Paddle Steamer in Gallowgate Street received a platinum rating from judges, and were hailed for their quality and standard. 

Inspectors from the competition visited thousands of toilets in pubs and restaurants across the UK, ranking them on criteria including decor, maintenance, cleanliness, handwashing, drying equipment and accessibility. 

The Paddle Steamer joined four other Ayrshire Wetherspoon venues with a platinum rating, including The Salt Cot in Saltcoats. 

The others were The Auld Brig in Irvine, The West Kirk in Ayr, The Wheatsheaf Inn in Kilmarnock and The Prestwick Pioneer.

Facilities are rated on a scale by inspectors of silver, gold, platinum, platinum plus and diamond, with below-standard toilets not receiving a rating.
