Scope and Content Plan of principal floor at Inveraray Castle, Argyll and Bute Inveraray Castle, a good example of early Gothic Revival style, was begun in 1745 to designs by the architect Roger Morris (1695-1749). The architect John Vanbrugh, (1664-1726) and Dugald Campbell, a military engineer (d.1757), may have provided ideas. This rectangular castle has side-walls of seven bays, or openings, and end-walls with five. The original use of the rooms is shown in brackets. In 1771 William Mylne (1734-90), architect, working for John, 5th Duke of Argyll, changed the main entrance. Originally placed on the south-west front the entrance was moved to the north-east front, which meant that the long gallery designed by Morris had to have partition walls built. The original hall on the south-west front became a parlour. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
