Scope and Content North-east entrance bridge from the fosse (dry moat) 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. The north-east bridge was designed by Morris but built in 1755-6 by George Hunter with minor variations from Morris's plan. Originally the bridge was similar to the south-west bridge. In 1871 the parapet openings were infilled and the finials removed. Sir Digby Wyatt (1820-77), architect, designed a porch in glass and iron to celebrate the marriage of Princess Louise to the Marquess of Lorne. The porch is reminiscent of Wyatt's work on Paddington Railway Station, London. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
