European Highlights 1700-1925

Artworks from the upper floor of the Scottish National Gallery

The Scottish National Gallery project will create brand new, light-filled spaces for the Gallery’s unrivalled collection of Scottish art. While this work is underway there is no lift to the upper galleries of the Scottish National Gallery. We want everyone to be able to enjoy these artworks so on this page you will find links to all the artworks as well as tours of the displays.
