At first we thought we were not going to see any Scottish artists work here but eventually we found it. Spent a couple of hours, here, some fine work, but like all galleries and art works, there is some bad too.

Nice staff.

During very brief visit to Edinburgh, glad we prioritized this site. Exceptional collection of masters, British and European, from renaissance to Impressionism- Titian, Botticelli, Rembrandt, Monet, Gainsborough, many more. Large but not massive museum, covered it in 90 min at swift pace.

A really lovely gallery with beautiful artwork. One Impressionist Room in particular was small with a central seat where we sat for about half and hour, soaking up the beautiful artwork.

You can wander round this gallery and enjoy art from various eras. Entrance is free except for any special exhibitions. Always visit when in Edinburgh.

We enjoyed our visit here. Plenty to see, well laid out and not overwhelming in its scale. Some beautiful paintings to view with useful explanations against them which added value. It's also free. Well worth a visit for a few hours.
