Inveraray Jail is made up of three distinct buildings and walled prison grounds. It is a unique collection of buildings which are very well-preserved.
COUNTY PRISON OF ARGYLL 1820 - 1889
Gavin Dick, Prison Governor
The courthouse with its spacious courtroom was used by the Circuit Court,
Sheriff Court and Burgh Courts. It was also used for public meetings and
meetings of the Magistrates and Town Council of Inveraray. The upper floor
of the courthouse was at one time a debtorsí prison. On the ground floor
beneath the courtroom there was accommodation for the keeper or governor of
the prison, and a kitchen where the food for the prisoners was cooked.
