In the words of my son "brilliant!!!". We have visited Inveraray Jail on numerous occasions with our own and friends children, still enjoy it as much as the first. Gives you an insight into how hard life was then & by the use of dummies brings it to life for children. Highly recommend it.

It was very interesting and thrilling. The actors were brilliant, watch out because some actors pretend to be max-works but they will try to give you a fright by moving an inch

Had a great visit to Inveraray Jail. Loved the living actors and their tales, lots to see and learn about. A nice touch was the kids stamp finder, they had to find 4 stamps hidden around the attraction.

Loved the 'actors' who all had their own stories about the characters they played. A few of the 'models' are looking a little tired. I also loved how they brought the stories of the former inmates to life and the horrors of the punishments they faced!
