Closed due to renovation work in the area. Not sure when it will reopen. It's well signposted from Union Street so probably woth a look to see what is happening.
As of July 2013 Provost Skene's House is shut for "a year" while they demolish nearby buildings. Shame, it looks great from the outside and I would really like to have seen inside it. Check website to see when it re-opens.
Narrow stairways and low doors which are not good for tall people, free entry, however we left a donation. Rooms were interesting and worth the look. A lot bigger on the inside than we thought.
