“So cool!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

The gallery was during our walk through town. The bagpipers playing in front of the gallery made it worth it!
The pictures are just amazing. Not a lot of the stupid modern art I hate, but real art from some of the best artists in the world. You can stay in for hours and hours and never get bored. Lots of places to sit as well. Loved it

“Fabulous collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I was impressed with the variety in the Scottish National Gallery. Poussin, Rubens, Botticelli, Rembrandt, Gainsborough.

The restaurant next door and gift store also worth checking out.

“Must See”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

I saw Catherine The Great's collection, and it was amazing. It was probably a "once in a lifetime" thing as I do not know how much that collection travels about the world. The museum is incredible.
