The National Portrait Gallery

Built in 1885-1890 as the National Portrait Gallery and National Museum of Antiquities, designed by Sir Robert Rowand Anderson, 1834-1921.

This is the place to go if you want to see portraits and old photographs of not only famous, but ordinary Scotsmen and women. Head straight for Rooms 3 and 4 on the top floor for these. Downstairs are oil paintings of Kings and Queens of Scotland; some are exceptionally fine examples of Renaissance portraiture.

The Stills Gallery

Changing exhibitions of photography situated in Cockburn Street.
