Refurbishment Closes Inveraray Jail for First Time in 21 Years

Monday, December 20th, 2010

From Tuesday 4th to Saturday 15th January 2011, the  Jail will close its doors to the public as improvements are made to the building.  This will be the first time the 19th century courthouse and prison has closed for more than one day since it re-opened as a visitor attraction 21 years ago in 1989.

The renovation includes a complete overhaul of the Inveraray Jail gift shop, customer toilets and essential maintenance in the main thoroughfares of the prisons .

We are looking forward to seeing our new and improved customer facilities.  As a privately run business, the maintenance and upkeep of the historic building is 100% our responsibility.  We are passionate about keeping this part of Argyll history in tip top condition whilst ensuring the best facilities and experience for our visitors.  We’re sorry for any inconvenience our short term closure may cause in the meantime.

For details of our opening times over the Festive period, please visit our website.  We will re-open on Saturday 15th January 2011 at 10am.
