Scope and Content South-west wall of the armoury hall in Inveraray Castle, Argyll and Bute John, 5th Duke of Argyll, inherited the title in 1770, and began to transform the interior of Inveraray Castle in 1782 in accordance with fashionable taste. French influence can be seen in the tapestry, furniture and carpets installed in the 1780s. The armoury hall was first designed to be entered from the entrance-hall through the central door on the ground floor. The architrave reflects the curve of the apse above, and the curve of the shallow round-headed recesses to the left and right. The architect Robert Mylne (1733-1814) transformed the interior of the castle from 1782-9. The armoury hall was originally designed by Roger Morris (1695-1749) and Mylne did not alter much of the original design, although he did install the weaponry. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
