Scottish National Portrait Gallery
The collection at National Portrait Gallery traces the history of Scotland through the portraiture of its pioneers, poets, philosophers, rebels and royalty. There is the chance to stare into the faces and read through the lines of Bonny Prince Charlie and Mary Queen of Scots. Scotland's modern-day media monarchy and heroes are immortalized in portraits of novelist Irvine Welsh, dancer Moira Shearer, fashion-guru Jean Muir and footballer Danny McGrain amongst others. Also represented are works of some international greats, including Van Dyck, Gainsborough and Rodin. Contemporary art is also exhibited and the growing National Photography Collection includes the ground breaking work of Hill and Adamson. Currently it is undergoing renovations, for updates on the same, please check the website.
