Airborne Elite!

Low flying shower
Mira showers is claiming what might be Britain’s remotest hot shower installation in the far highlands of Scotland.

The Elite QT shower went into accommodation at a virtually inaccessible dam near Inverie, Knoydart. Inverie can only be reached by boat, or by 17-mile hike over rough ground. The dam – which provides all the community’s power supplies – is even further flung and the accommodation serves a team from Knoydart Renewables based there. So remote is the site that the team has all its supplies and equipment – even the accommodation itself – airlifted in by helicopter.

As the helicopter lift capacity to the dam is only one tonne, the accommodation blocks were specially designed to be readily transportable. On one of those lifts, was the Mira Elite QT, for the crew’s shower room.
