Very impressive museum and collections. Paintings are amazing and I learned a lot about Scotland. I enjoyed the Photographs of Childhood, and, the Jacobite exhibition. It's free! The building itself was amazing as well.

Went to the RSA Grad Student event. Such a pleasure. This is the best of new artists in Scotland all brought together. I wish I had come weeks ago and that some of it might have been available for purchase! So much as been sold already. However, a joy to see. Thanks.

Another museum of Scotland which did not charge an entry fee! And, the displays were wonderful. We followed the suggested route through the gallery and were able to see everything well.

If you’re in the centre and need a break from the shops then the gallery is a must! So much to see and take in but it’s worth it! We spent around half an hour or so but could have spent more :)

Really enjoyed our visit here.
Lots of good art, a little gem of a find.
Free entry and a good cafe at the end of your visit.
Well worth a visit.
