A walk back in time to Peterhead Prison, followed by a pint in our very own Brewdog Peterhead and a trip to New Slains Castle for another historical insight into the north east of Scotland.
Step back in time to when you visit the former “H.M. Convict Prison, Peterhead” which officially opened in 1988 and now forms part of the Admiralty Getaway. For the inside story of those brave personnel that staffed the first convict prison in Scotland from August 1888 to December 2013, what better way to learn than to visit and interact with guides in period costumes and see the cells and other key components of this complex that is known worldwide.
In this tour, you will see:
- Gentle Johnny Ramensky Cell
- Visitor Centre
- An Array of prison memorabilia
- Prison Tours
- Historical photos
- Cell an Punishment block access
- Traditional and interactive displays
- Re-creation of convict working areas
Followed by: A craft beer stop at Brewdog
In 2007, two men from Ellon called James and Martin started Brewdog with a mission to make people as passionate about craft beer as they were. In April 2007, an industrial estate in north east Scotland was born. Brewdog kept expanding and expanding and our latest Brewdog bar has recently opened here in Peterhead.
New Slains Castle
Slains Castle is also known as the New Slains Castle and it overlooks the North Sea from cliff-top site, which is just east of beautiful Cruden Bay. The core of the castle is 16th century tower house, built by the 9th Earl of Erroll.
