The National Galleries of Scotland is an outstanding international art gallery and houses the world’s most comprehensive collection of Scottish art.

The Galleries are home to one of the best collections of fine art in the world dating from the early Renaissance to the present-day including works by key artists in history, as well as portraits of great Scots and iconic works such as The Monarch of the Glen and Reverend Robert Walker (1755 - 1808) Skating on Duddingston Loch.

Discover Scotland's Art collection

In Autumn 2023, for the first time in 30 years, a major refurbishment will showcase the Scottish and international collection. This major project will completely transform the way Scottish art is shown at the Gallery.

The scheme will create a new suite of exhibition spaces that will be directly accessible from the adjoining Princes Street Gardens, and provide a light-filled, new home for our unrivalled collection of Scottish art, raising its profile for visitors from all over the world.
