Tap water at Lochwinnoch.

We shall be on holiday at Lochwinnoch for 8 days.

Is there someone who can give us information on Tap Water at Lochwinnoch.

Is it good to drink directly from Tap?

Surrounded with so many Lochs and mountains this question seems a bit funny

but anyway we want to make sure.

Thanks a lot

Tap water from the public water mains in the UK is safe to drink. The quality is very strictly regulated.

Water from a private supply (well, borehole etc) used for business also has to be checked regularly.

Taps in bedrooms and bathrooms are often supplied by a tank in the attic. That's ok for brushing teeth with, but if you want to fill a water bottle you may want to ask for water from the kitchen tap.

No problems with tap water anywhere in the U.K. There can be small issues however with ice in cold drinks in bars and pubs, due to a lack of cleanliness, so if you're worried miss out the ice. Very often water in public toilets will display a notice telling you it's NOT drinking water, as sometimes with bedroom taps, but generally you will be safe.

You may find the tap water very soft, and it can be 'peaty', but it is delicious and definitely drinkable.
