Inverary

Today we went to Inverary, this is a small town about half way between Dunoon and Oban.The main attractions are a woollen mill, a castle and a historic jail.

castle

I have never managed to view the woollen mill, but a few years ago I did visit the castle, this was a bit disappointing, and in my view was not worth the entrance fee.

Most years though we have visited the jail.

I had hoped to miss it this year but my daughter wanted to see it.

The jail is quite good and starts of with an exhibition called Death & Damnation, this is an exhibition about torture!.

After this you are able to view a courtroom with real cases from the history books being played, followed by a trip downstairs to view the original jail, followed by the newer jail that was still in use until around the 1840's

Part of the exhibition goes on to tell how good a life a modern prisoner gets in prison today!.
