The painting of these Arms on canvas is to be found on the roof-tree nearest to the Crawfurd Gallery. This is a replica of the canvas which was placed there after the Extension was built in 1903-05. The artist is unknown. When this was taken down during the fifth Centenary restorations it was judged to be beyond repair, and was copied.
The Arms are those of Neil James Kennedy Cochrane-Patrick of Woodside and Ladyland. Public Register of all Arms and Bearings in Scotland (Volume 16, folio 4) 15th March 1900.
