I am not really an arty person but I appreciated the beautiful paintings and sculptures here. I would recommend if you are really into art, lots of beautiful paintings here dating back from the 17th century to present day. Very pleasing to the eye displays.

In the early 1960s the Scottish Modern Arts Association donated over 300 works to the city, including key works... More

Obviously this isn't a really great gallery, but I enjoyed my introduction to Scottish art, and was awfully pleased to find that a dog lover had essentially strongarmed the gallery into displaying a (quite good) portrait of his dog. The lighting left a LOT to be desired and I felt that it detracted from the viewing experience as to see... More

That's a simple gallery of arts, I don't wanna rank it among the top city attraction but it could be quiet interesting just for a short visit or for those who are really interested in art. The building however is nice in certain ways reminds me one of those Ancient Greek temples surrounded by dozen of columns and it's located... More

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
