This bed, which is called the Golden Bed of Brahan, is made from palm trees in the Dutch East Indies, and dates from the reign of Mary, Queen of Scots’ son, James VI. It was kept at Brahan Castle in Inverness for many years and was gifted to the trust in 1950.

When Falkland Palace was in use as a summer residence, it used to take as many as three carriages to carry the king’s own bed around the country. In May 1539 it cost the massive sum of £160 (over £67,000 today) to transport the king’s ‘Great Green Bed’ from Falkland to St. Andrews.
