A group of French school children have been in the north-east to get a taste of life behind bars.
The pupils from PG67 Lycee St Aspais High School near Paris visited Peterhead Prison Museum as part of an educational trip.
The students were given a chance to work on their English and learn about the history of the facility, which began operating in 1888 and closed its doors permanently 125 years later, with inmates moved to the £140million HMP Grampian complex.
It is not first the French school has been to the attraction as its pupils also made two visits last year.
Alex Geddes, operations manager at Peterhead Prison Museum said it was a “sobering” experience for the youngsters.
He said: “Peterhead Prison Museum were delighted to host a repeat visit from PG67 Lycee St Aspais High School.
“We are always delighted to host school trips to the museum and will tailor make their trip to their needs.
“Seeing the inside of these walls is a very sobering thing for all age groups and as an education tool we continue to learn from each school trip to support the development of the museum for such visits.”
