All of what you wanted to know about Scottish painting and Scots artists. The cornerstone was laid by Prince Albert - for more about all the collections see their web site!

The Gallery has a fine collection of Scottish and International art works and sculptures. I find that it is always worth visiting and seeing the collection and any of the temporary exhibitions. Admission is free, although with many galleries they may charge for special exhibitions. The gallery has a good shop and very good refreshment facilities.

You can take photographs without a flash or otherwise advised - normally you cannot take photographs in temporary exhibitions.

Address: The Mound, Edinburgh, EH2 2EL
