We visited this gallery after visiting Gallery One across the busy main road. Lovely setting and building. Very interesting art work on the ground floor including a magnificent sculpture in the middle of the cafe. However the exhibition on the upper floor is not free.

Arriving through Dean Village we passed the neon work 'There will be no miracles here'. Quite amusing. On the gallery next door is the neon work 'Everything is going to be alright'. Both worthy of thought. A coffee in the nicely done cafe with waitress...More

Yes, this place was really informative, and I hasten to add, thoroughly enjoyable. The emphasis on modern Scottish art was excellently done. The term 'Modern' can cover so many different styles and genres and this gallery does its best to present a cross section which...More

Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling

first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
