All reviews court room well worth a visit audio guide crime and punishment interesting place couple of hours great place to visit value for money few hours interesting visit own pace rainy day gift shop friendly staff entrance fee prisoners courtroom
An interesting, if at times gruesome place to see. Very cold so wrap up warm if you are visiting in winter.
We found it difficult to find out prices before we went and we thought it was expensive at around £11 for an OAP concession...More
Was rather pricey and did not get what i expected. We were not told about how to get the free audio tours when purchasing tickets. When we did manage to get to the cells the "actors" were very lack luster. A female dressed as a...More

We'll be in Inveraray on Mon Aug 7 on a CIE coach tour. We have from 12:15 to about 1:45 to eat lunch and explore the town and are scheduled to tour the castle at 2 pm.

It's a wee while since I went but I think I took around an hour, you could shave fifteen minutes off. I'd much rather see the Jail and have a wander around the village and by the water than sit in for lunch - iirc I bought a sandwich and crisps in the Inveraray Co-op.

One more thing: those driving times are from Google Maps so are likely skimpy...
