National Gallery of Scotland


The National Gallery Complex is the Capital's top free visitor attraction. It is made up of three interconnected buildings: the National Gallery of Scotland - home to a major part of Scotland's sensational national collection of fine art; the Weston Link - with modern eating, drinking and shopping facilities; and the Royal Scottish Academy Building - Scotland's premier venue for international exhibitions. The National Gallery of Scotland houses part of the national collection, with works by almost every major figure of Western art, from the Early Renaissance to the end of the 19th century. It is an unmissable opportunity to see the work of Raphael, Botticelli, Titian, Monet, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, El Greco, Cezanne, Degas, Gauguin and many others. It is also home to a comprehensive collection of Scottish art - with masterpieces by Raeburn, Ramsay and Wilkie. The Weston Link (providing world-class visitor facilities) and the Royal Scottish Academy Building (used for special exhibitions) are both accessible from the National Gallery. Situated right in the heart of Edinburgh, it is an ideal stop-off for groups also wanting to take part in Princes Street and its wonderful views and gardens. There is a gift shop, restaurant and cafe.
