“Impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Lots of well known paintings to view. The Rembrant self portrait is amazing. It was quite busy when we went round - a Friday and the problem was a lot of art students were gathering round particular paintings listening to their tutors.

“Great for art lovers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Some lovely pieces but a few sections where getting changed, not suitable for children though as would be rather boring for them

“While away a pleasant hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

I've been before but always find it worth dropping in to see what's new. Good and varied selection of art and great homemade cakes in the cafe downstairs (and at reasonable prices)

“School holiday must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

The Scottish National Gallery is a gem in the city centre. The nations art free for us all. How lucky are we. It's also the home of this lovely cafe serving real food. You can taste its home made. I love the list of artisan suppliers listed on the back of the menus.
