Interesting exhibition. I particularly enjoyed the interactive part of it. It worth a visit and it is totally free, although a contribution is suggested. The café is very nice with the best coffee I ever had in Scotland (honestly) and a beautiful piece of lemon...More

We have visited this Gallery before and were especially keen to visit this year, having recently seen the BBC “Imagine” documentary. Whilst the galleries are not grand and the displays not on the scale of the London Tacita Dean presentations, there is much to see...More

We really enjoyed visiting here. We went when a book fair was on that a colleague was taking part in. Really glad we got to go and check out this place. I often prefer the smaller galleries when you don't want to be bombarded with...More

'Emperor's New Clothes' mmmmm art ......no. Lovely introduction on TV upstairs by artist to explain so called art work on display. Seriously though the ' art' was absolute twaddle. At least the venue is free and you can walk away without feeling robbed. Artist great...More

We popped in here for a look round. The current show is enjoyable - especially the Advice Bar. Conceptual Art can be dry and heavy, but the enthusiastic staff made up for any of that. The complete opposite to the atmosphere in CAC, across the...More

Brilliant and definitely worth a visit. It's proximity to Waverley and city centre means there's no excuse! However if you are #Coeliac rethink eating at the cafe. Although gluten free cakes are available the server looked bemused and rolled her eyes when asked if separate...More

Worth dropping in for a quick look round and there is a nice coffee shop. Nice post cards plus stamps for that card to your mum.

Great little modern gallery right near the busy hubbub of the Waverly Station. We saw the fantastic Jac Leirner exhibit and watched a very interesting video of her and her work at the second floor. It's a great interior space. The gallery is large enough...More

Love the Fruitmarket, it's a small space but often has really interesting exhibitions and is always curated excellently. The cafe serves good coffee and admission is free but donations are welcome. If you have any questions the invigilators can provide information on current/upcoming works. Would...More

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
