Peterhead Prison

North East 250

Dedicated to the staff that worked here between 1888 – 2013, Peterhead Prison was once known as the most notorious prison in Scotland, and today you can explore the main halls, silent cell and hear some staff members speak of their experiences working here. Nearby, head to the picturesque Cruden Bay and marvel at this sweeping expanse of pink sands and dunes that stretch for 2.5 kms.
