“Gorgeous collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

Loved this find! Originally thought "I'll check it out because I'm freezing cold and would like to go inside" and ended up spending 2 hours there! A great and diverse collection.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2013

I am no expert so I was staggered at what was in this gallery. Can't imagine how valuable all the works of art must be valued at.
Great facility in a lovely setting. Excellent facilities to support the facility.

“Small but interesting museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

This museum is very small, but it has an interesting assortment of artists. The bottom floor is all Scottish artists, all of whom I wasn't familiar with beforehand. The museum also has Rodin's world-famous "The Kiss" on loan from the Tate Modern in London for just a few more months, and a few works by Raphael, El Greco, and several well-known Impressionist painters. A great choice!

“Wonderful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

This is another beautiful gallery with beautiful art. My favourite thing about the gallery had to be the section devoted entirely to Scottish artists and the stairwell lined with busts
