Had a great day out in Inverary. We visited the jail and was really fun and interesting. Kids enjoyed looking for the stamps to complete their collection card, so they could get a badge at the end ☺️

We visited on a weekend away, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would defo recommend it as a place to visit, you also get 15% of the castle tickets with your receipt from the jail which we also visited

We found this attraction very interesting. It shows how different things were back then. We spent a couple of hours here and thought it was good value. Keep your ticket if you want to visit the castle as you will get 20% off admission.
