Scope and Content Ceiling, 'King's Bedroom', cross-house, Falkland Palace, Fife Falkland Palace was remodelled in 1537-41 for King James V (died 1542). The south range dates from his reign, as do the exteriors of the earlier buildings. The east and north ranges were probably both built for King James IV (1488-1513). This ceiling was painted in Jacobean style by David McClure in 1956 when the first floor of the cross-house was decked out as the 'King's Bedroom' in 1956 by W Schomberg Scott.
