Notes:

1. The figures in these columns cannot be added to produce a total maximum since the individual establishment figures relate to different days within the year. During 2009-10, the maximum number of prisoners held within the Scottish Prison Service estate on any one day was 8,248 on 7 July 2009. The maximum number of men prisoners was 7,834 on 7 July 2009, and the maximum number of women prisoners was 464 on 21 September 2009.

2. Castle Huntly and Noranside have been merged for administrative purposes to form the Open Estate.

3. See Section 5 for details on the current prison estate.
