The Tapestry Room. The Tapestry Room was formed as part of the west wing extension by architect Robert Weir-Schultz.


It was commissioned by the 3rd Marquess of Bute and was specifically designed to house four early-eighteenth-century Flemish tapestries acquired by the 5th Earl of Dumfries, two of which had previously hung in the Blue Drawing Room. The room was completed by the 4th Marquess, eight years after his father’s death in October 1900.
