The four major galleries in Edinburgh offer a very diverse experience of art. Our favourites are the National Gallery of Modern Art and the Dean gallery which are away from the city centre and offer a wonderful range and a less crowded experience.
Founded in 1128 and now the official residence of the Royal Family in Scotland. The oldest parts of the building is the most interesting with Mary Queen of Scots bedchamber and the adjoining room where her secretary was stabbed and killed.
If you interested in history, this will fascinate you along with the compulsory guided tour between November and March. During the summer you can just wander around. For art lovers don't miss the new Queen's Gallery.
Probably a must visit as you start your wander down the Royal Mile. Striking views and lots of nooks and crannies to explore. Either join the guided tour included in the ticket price or set off on your own
