Mr Monkey at Argyll's Lodging

"It's a nice room, but it's a little sparely furnished"

Mr Monkey in the Laigh Hall Mr Monkey beside the main stair

Many of the rooms in the Lodging have been decorated to appear as they did when the Argylls owned the house, using 1680 and 1682 inventories of the contents of the rooms. Downstairs, Mr Monkey investigated the Laigh Hall, which was used as an entrance hall and possibly as a dining hall for the senior servants. Apparently, 'laigh' is just Scots for 'lower'. The splendid main stair is the poshest of the six staircases in the Lodging.
