Ghost Hunts at Inveraray Jail
Venture into Inveraray Jail, where echoes of its dark past mingle with ghostly presences; uncover the mysteries of a place once marked by torture, despair, and unexplained hauntings that continue to this day.
Step into the shadows of Inveraray, a place once ruled by the Duke of Argyll, and uncover the chilling secrets that lie within its ancient walls. This historic town, the heart of Argyll for centuries, has a dark and mysterious past that beckons you to explore.
In 1820, a new Jail and Courthouse were erected, replacing the old prison notorious for its numerous escapes. This new establishment stood tall and unchanged until 1843, when the Airing Yards were constructed, providing a secure haven for prisoners to breathe the open air.
But the real intrigue began in 1848 with the completion of the New Prison, or Men’s Prison. A marvel of its time, it boasted twelve solitary cells, modern amenities, and even indoor exercise areas. It was a beacon of progress, well-lit and heated, a stark contrast to the grim and gloomy original prison.
However, the Jail’s doors were shut on August 30, 1889, due to the exorbitant costs of maintenance. The once-thriving courthouse and prisons fell into decay, only to be saved by their recognition as Scotland’s finest 19th-century county courthouse and prison. A meticulous restoration brought them back to life, and in May 1989, exactly a century after the last prisoners left, Inveraray Jail opened its gates to the public.
But do not be fooled by its restored beauty, for many claim the jail is still inhabited by those who never left. Visitors have reported mysterious scratches, ghostly touches, and unexplained figures. Footsteps echo in empty halls, and the faint scent of tobacco lingers in the air. Some believe that the souls of those who perished within these walls remain trapped, forever bound to a place marked by torture, despair, and violence.
