From the outside, this appears to be just "another Scottish building", but it is like a tardis once inside. It is so informative, and reading some of the sentences passed on young children was very sad....a brilliant half day for a family....

We went to visit Inverary Jail on our last day (not knowing that if you go there first you get a discount at the castle!) and were pleasantly surprised. I really didn't expect there to be so much to see and so much information to take it! It is really well done, giving great insight into the history of the jail(s) as well as into what life was like at the time. Lots to read, but there are audio guides to take around with you too if you want. Great!
