The Gun Room is part of the Servant Quarters between Netherton in the main house and the Servants Kitchen and its purpose was to store the Guns and Ammunition used by the laird and his staff.
The room had similar wall cupboards as the design used in the Library, meaning that they looked like Library shelves with the wire mesh doors but instead of books they would have held the Guns.
The ammunition would have beeen stored in the section below. The room is similar in layout to the sketch drawing below.
There was also a phone installed in the room and a call button that would display on the panels on the floors above but also a pull bell system too.
This room is just used for storage now as the Guns and Amunation once located here is no longer required.
