Scope and Content Ceiling of dining room 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 plasterwork of the ceiling and cornice was executed by John Clayton between 1781 and 1782. The ceiling is divided into three panels, the central square containing a flower, a band of leaf sprays, and a broad band of painted floral garlands. The architect Robert Mylne (1733-1814) was responsible for much interior decoration of the castle. He made plans for the complete decoration of the south-west saloon and all the state rooms on the north-east side, including the dining room. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
