National Gallery of Scotland
The National Gallery of Scotland is situated in a neoclassical building on The Mound in central Edinburgh, Scotland. The gallery has been open since 1859, and houses the country’s best collection of fine art from the beginning of the Renaissance through to the beginning of the 20th century. The building itself was designed by William Henry Playfair, and the first stone was laid by Prince Albert. Since then, the National Gallery of Scotland has been the epicentre of fine arts in Edinburgh and contains several masterpieces including paintings by Jacopo Bassano and Giambattista Tiepolo.

The National Gallery of Scotland is situated on Princes Street in the heart of Edinburgh, so it is not hard to reach from just about anywhere in the city. The easiest way to get there is to take the train and get off at the Waverley Station that is just a few minutes walk away. You can also take one of the City Centre/Princes Street buses, almost all of which stop near the National Gallery of Scotland. Those with private cars should leave them at home as the gallery has very limited on-site parking.
