Art gallery complex in 2 main buildings - the Royal Scottish Academy fronting Princes Street at The Mound, and behind it the National Gallery of Scotland. Both usually free, but may charge for special events. National Gallery is the place for your Rubens, Goya, Titian etc. RSA has the specials - we just missed an Andy Warhol exhibition.
Because its free, and centrally located, you can "pop in" any time, sit down and gaze at a few Raphaels or Poussins.
I lived in Edinburgh for 13 years and my parents were there for 25. It took me until my 55th birthday to actually go in and have a look!
Anyway, as you'll see from my homepage looking for new experiences is part of my ethos, and this was part of it!
