The Scottish National Gallery is on the Mound, right in the heart of Edinburgh, on Princes Street.  Go to our Visit section for more details.

On Foot

The Scottish National Gallery can be accessed on foot either from Market Street (via the Playfair Steps), The Mound, West Princes Street Gardens, or Princes Street itself.

By Bus

All City Centre/Princes Street buses pass the Scottish National Gallery.

By Car

Follow routes for City Centre and City Centre Attractions. There is no car park at the Gallery, and very limited on-street parking near the venue. We recommend you park your car in one of the many City Centre car parks instead.
