Inverary Jail Tour

STEP THROUGH THE DOORS OF INVERARAY JAIL AND STEP BACK IN TIME TO A 19TH-CENTURY PRISON. EXPERIENCE WHAT LIFE WAS LIKE FOR THE REAL MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN – SOME AS YOUNG AS SEVEN – WHO WERE TRIED AND LOCKED UP HERE. EXPLORE THE ATMOSPHERIC HISTORIC BUILDINGS AT YOUR LEISURE AND MEET THE COSTUMED CHARACTERS WHO ANIMATE THE PAST IN THIS UNIQUE LIVING MUSEUM.

The Old Prison was completed in 1820 at the same time as the Courthouse. It was the principal jail of the county of Argyll and housed men, women and children, convicted and unconvicted prisoners, the sane and the insane in eight cold, damp cells.

Conditions gradually improved after the Penal Reform Bill of 1838. The prison was inspected in 1840 by the new Inspector of Prisons for Scotland, Frederic Hill. He drew up a long list of improvements. Shortly after his visit, one of the cells was converted into a washroom. In 1841, a new coal fired heating system and gas fittings for light were installed. In 1849, all male prisoners were moved to the recently completed New Prison.

Compare the conditions of the Old Prison to the New Prison when you visit Inveraray Jail, and experience prison life for yourself when you are locked in your cell by the Warder or escorted out to the Airing Yards for your daily exercise.

Refugee Festival Scotland – 2019

efugee Festival Scotland celebrates the contribution refugees make to life in Scotland – the food and drink, music and poetry, dance, visual art and ideas that people bring with them when they seek safety in Scotland. From Thursday 20 – Sunday 30 June 2019, the festival offers people from different backgrounds the chance to meet and celebrate together: to sample a little of each other’s cultures, listen to each other’s stories and get to know each other better.

This year, the theme of Refugee Festival Scotland is Making Art, Making Home, which aims to showcase the talent, creativity and resilience of New Scots artists and community groups. Arts, culture and sport are important in creating spaces for old and new Scots alike to meet and learn more about each other, breaking down barriers and highlighting the vibrancy and diversity of Scotland’s communities. The full programme will be announced in early May.

Refugee Festival Scotland is produced and coordinated by Scottish Refugee Council, an independent charity dedicated to providing advice and information to people seeking refugee protection in Scotland. Join us to campaign for positive change and to build a culture of welcome in Scotland.
