Prisoners at a north-east super jail will dine on chicken Balmoral and burgers this Christmas.
HMP Grampian will ring in the holidays with a three-course meal on both Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, offering inmates the choice of multi-faith or Halal menus.
The lunches include desserts and an evening “snack pack”.
On Christmas Day, they will be given the option of soup and fruit, two Lorne sausage rolls, two vegetarian burgers or yoghurt for breakfast.
Chicken Balmoral will be the most popular option for lunch, but vegetarians can plump for a mushroom and stilton wellington instead. Dessert will be chocolate and orange gateau.
The New Year breakfast will offer the same options as the Christmas menu, but lunch will be a choice between steak pie or a nut roast.
Trifle or chocolate gateau will follow.
Each of the meals served over the holidays will include boiled and roast potatoes, vegetables and gravy.
The menus have been released through a Freedom of Information request, sparked by the trial of six men accused of starting a riot at the prison which caused £150,000 worth of damage in 2014.
Four of the men were eventually found guilty of a reduced charge of causing a breach of the peace when the trial finished last week.
During the course of the 15-hour siege, the Peterhead jail’s facilities were destroyed and officers were attacked before guards stormed the wing in riot gear and armed with Pava spray.
Young offenders have subsequently been barred from the prison, which means any Buchan youths in the system will spend the holidays incarcerated, away from their families.
The Scottish Prison Service has said it is “not in a position” for the prisoners to return to the £140million facility.
They are instead housed at YOI Polmont.
