When the church was enlarged in 1636, a new painted ceiling was placed over the eastern part of the building.  This was done at a time when King Charles was trying to make the church in Scotland more like that in England.  It is not clear however, whether the ceiling was placed here to emphasize the area around the communion table, or if it was because the laird had his pew in this part.  The ceiling is decorated with the arms of families connected with the Stewarts of Grandtully, with depcitions of the apostles, and with a number of suitable aph???    ???? is a panel showing a death scene and the last judgement.
