Christine Roberts, General Manager at Melfort Village, said: “We are delighted to offer our customers our fantastic visitor attraction promotion this August.   Inveraray Jail and Sea Life Sanctuary are excellent examples of the array of family activities that are on offer in the area and we are thrilled to be working with them on this promotion.”

Inveraray Jail was once the courthouse and prison serving Argyll.  Real life warders, matrons and prisoners bring the 19th century prison alive.  Visitors can try out prison beds and hammocks in the old and new prisons, sit in on a trial in the spectacular courtroom, sample the brutal 19th century prison punishments and search through prison records for naughty ancestors.  The privately run attraction is open all year round.  For more information call 01499 302 381 or visit

The Scottish Sea Life Sanctuary is situated in Barcaldine, 15-20 minutes north of Oban.  The popular visitor attraction opens a window into a watery wonderland, teeming with amazing sea creatures of astonishing variety. Nestling amidst the pine trees on the shores of picturesque Loch Creran, the centre combines a spectacular aquarium with a busy rescue and rehabilitation facility for both common and grey seal pups.  Telephone 01631 720386 or visit
