Had a nice look round the Scottish national gallery from looking at the self portrait of Rembrandt to the monarch of the glen it is well worth having a look and best of all it's free. The only downside was we couldn't go upstairs to look at the impressionism section as this was closed off due to covid

Relax atmosphere at the moment. At this moment you need to book in advance. The website is a bit chunky, it works well, but you need to go through a number of pages before you actually can get your free ticket. I booked just 30 minutes …

Great building and some fantastic and very important artworks in the gallery. It is not a huge gallery, which is part of the charm of this wonderful space. One can easily while away a few hours here. The Scottish National Gallery is a must see when in Edinburgh.

Spent some time looking around the National gallery in Edinburgh and was very impressed. Some fabulous works of art and some amazing statues. The decor of the gallery was first class. I went in September so not to busy but very crowded during the summer holidays. Definitely worth a visit.

If you are an art lover, this would be a good place to visit. Though the area is not that huge and you can probable explore it in about half an hour or 45 minutes if you want to stare at the paintings for a little longer, it still is an interesting place to visit. The Midsummer Night's Dream painting is part of their collection.

Lovely fine arts gallery chock-full of a rich tableau of painting and sculpture from 1300 to 1950, and is a manageable size to be taken in in an hour if you go quickly or an afternoon if you take your time. Considering the size of the …

Another fantastic free museum in Edinburgh, although donations are encouraged. It displays a range of paintings. Very interesting and a great central location. Not sure why you can't sit in some of the chairs though.

I'm giving the gallery 5 stars, even though they were undergoing a big refit when I was there, and it felt more like a work-in-progress than the main gallery of a capital city. But for the price - free! - there is still so much to enjoy, even if your visit is curtailed by the work going on.

Situated near to Waverley train station, the National Gallery is an amazing place to visit. There are many famous works of art in the Gallery. In my opinion, These pieces of tremendous art are the best of Daddi, Degas, Duncan, Gaugin and Singer-Sargent! (Photos taken on iPad 6th Generation)

They had a nice variety of artists from different periods. Excellent way to spend a couple hours. And being free is always helpful. I always drop several pounds in the donation boxes.

An amazing gallery with some truly astonishing art. However! Where is the art painted by women? In the entirety of the downstairs gallery there is not one piece of art painted by a woman. It’s just a bit irksome. Definitely some amazing renaissance art though.

A bit surprised that it isn’t a huge gallery like the one in London; does have fantastic collections nonetheless. I got to spend more time appreciating artworks while tagging along the tour occasionally. It was a wonderful and enlightening experience.

I really enjoyed the experience. They have a great variety of paintings from different time periods, including some from the great masters. Beautifully curated. The January special exhibit is lovely. And the cafe wasn’t great, but it was nice enough. They also have cute gift shops.
