If you like art this place is a must. Lots of fantastic paintings on show by well known artists. Can get busy so plan to go early or later in the day if you can.

Loved this place, interesting paintings, not too many to be overwhelmed. My favourite is Monet and pleased to see his work there. Great little shop. Overall a good place to visit whatever the weather.

I regretted going in, was so happy to leave, painting aren't even that good. If I could I would use the museum as a paint balling arena

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you

beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
