Deputy Chief Inspector of Prisons Stephen Sandham told MSPs he was "extremely concerned" about the dramatic rise in the prison population.
It rose by 9% in the year ending March, the equivalent of one additional large prison.
Mr Sandham told the Justice Committee: "We think it's got quite a profound and quite a worrying impact."
Phil Fairlie from the Prison Officers Association Scotland was also concerned about increasing violence levels, with a doubling of serious assaults and a 60% increase in staff absence levels.
Elsewhere, Health Secretary Jeane Freeman has announced in inquiry into safety issues at the new children's hospital in Edinburgh and the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow.
It comes ahead of a Scottish Tory debate on NHS infrastructure tomorrow.
