Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art

The collection is split over two buildings: Modern One and Modern Two. Visit before 29 October to see Modern Two’s visiting exhibition on British Realist Painting in the 1920s and 30s.

The galleries are joined linked by a beautiful green space that doubles as a backdrop for work from the likes of British sculptor, Henry Moore. It’s a picturesque 30-40 minute walk here from Edinburgh Waverley, or you can take the shuttle bus (£1) from the National Gallery on Princes Street.

It’s free to get in, with a charge for some of the special exhibitions.
