This was our first visit to Inveraray Jail, it was very interesting and informative. I was half expecting one of the dummy’s in the courtroom to move and give me a fright, thankfully none did. Walking through the corridors where the cells are is quite...More

This was my second visit to the jail having visited for the first time many years ago as a child.
There are audio guides available free of charge however we felt they were difficult to listen to whilst looking round the exhibition (personal preference).
This is the third time I have visited the Jail and I always enjoy it.
The wealth of information available really adds to the experience and transports you back in time to a place which is very different to now. It helps with your own...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.

What's the least amount of time needed to do it justice? Are there certain areas that are must-sees or could be skipped with...More

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...
