We had a great day at the jail. The lay out is user friendly and the information displayed is very informative. The guide was sitting in the cell like a model but moved when 2 old ladies passed. - hilarious. The shop is a line of Scottish information through books and other forms. The sights from the parapet is amazing all the way up loch Fyne is wonderful. The feeling of sadness and bleakness is all around but the staff endeavour to take you away from that with their cheery chat. We didn't need to pay as we had this as part of our groupon night away. Well worth it. Go it's really interesting.

We really enjoyed the visit and using our Tesco Vouchers was a real bonus but sadly there was too much reading and very hard especially for somebody with sight problems - a good way round this would be to have a portable audio handset as they do in some nation trust properties and this could tell the sorry without all the reading........staff very friendly. Our visit was mid week and not during any school holidays so there was no actors? Good way to spend a rainy afternoon.

Its a well thought out attraction really takes you back in time. The actors are great had me screaming. The information that is provided is in depth and makes you think how harsh it was. I would recommend a visit, not a bad price too.

It was fun! I just cannot imagine mothers and children being jailed. Yes, they had cells just for them. And the sentences were just cruel. Still, it was enlightening.
