"Entering the Castle by the main porch, the Hall opens to the corridor, which runs along the centre of the building from which the grand staircase conducts to the Royal Private Apartments on the first-floor. The Dining-room and Drawing-room, with the Billiard-room and Library, occupy the ground-floor, and are spacious and most commodious apartments. The Private Rooms of the Queen front the west, as seen in this view, and look up the valley of the Dee on the wild Pass of Invercauld.

The furnishings of the Royal Apartments are of the plainest and most substantial character, and distinguished by that simplicity of style and purity of taste for which the Royal Family are so remarkable."

Descriptive letterpress from the book 'Photographs of English and Scottish Scenery' by G W Wilson
