Swimming pools/leisure centres are always a good option.
Not much help in the middle of nowhere though!
So I am a camper van owner and I know that lots of you on here have motorhomes complete with showers!
I am in the middle of nowhere ( with a 3G signal for a change)and have been wandering around the Hebrides and Highlands for nearly two weeks. The WC and toilet POIs have been absolutely invaluable for my peace of mind and forward planning but if I could add one thing it would be places you can get a shower! I totally accept that there is usually a small charges for this.
I had done some research before I came and discovered that various ferry terminals have them but I found that certainly one of them, doesn't open until the main tourist season. This resulted in me belonging to the unwashed for longer than I'd have liked.
In my travels I also discovered a public access shower that I hadn't heard about. I would have loved to have submitted this as a new POI.
I don't tend to use other sites like this one. But I suspect that adding shower POIs can only enhance us further! These could also include campsites that are happy for you to use their showers for a small charge. I went to a campsite the other day in search of shower usage but the problem here is that many of them don't have anyone there until a certain time. They were Non-coin operated showers and it felt a bit cheeky to just go and use them.
At its worst, I resorted to washing my hair in the camper - this is a bit of a pain to be honest in various ways. Unfortunately the greasy hair disguise known as 'the plait' only gives you another 48 hours max!
I like wild camping not stinky camping!

I used a shower at Stornoway leisure centre after having initially rocked up for one at Sportnis leisure centre in the north of Lewis only too find it closed as it was a Sunday lesson learnt but again this info attached to showers poi would have been invaluable! Lol
Oh and don't think I didn't think about being one with nature and going for a bath in the Atlantic. I like wild not mad!

There is a shower section in the new POI system.
I am sitting here coding the beta version right now.
Well Phil it looks like you have a guinnea pig for the beta testing

Take a solar shower in the van.If no Sun fill with warm water from the kettle.Pack the bikini,Find a quiet spot and hang it off the side of the van so any rare passing motorists can't see you.(The shower not the bikini).Unless that floats your boat).As a last resort its a very nice feeling getting clean outside.Or if the weathers warm enough get in a loch but in the middle of the day so the midgies don't get you!
