I know this is quite common.

Problem is I want to tile to the bathroom floor and have no skirting. What can I Use to fill the gap and create a good bonding surface for the tiles?

Rough plaster the gap myself (my plastering skills are zero)?

Or,

Leave the void there (the tiles are very large anyway)?

Bear in mind that if you belt an unsupported tile with a vacuum it'll crack a damn site easier than one that's fully supported. The choice is yours - for what's involved, why not just chuck some bonding plaster in the gap? You don't need any plastering skills to do that.

you can fill it with anything probably that sets hard. some sand and cement or some extra tile adhesive... I would certainly fill with something though as it will be easier when it comes to grouting.
