Loved this gallery! Visited for the exhibition a friend had posted about. Fresh and edgy in the art scene. I especially enjoyed the video art "The Common Sense"

A lovely canvas for any exhibition. I went to Counterplace which was interesting and varied. Not a massive set of spaces so even if you're not a major art fan - this can be a nice quick visit.

The Talbot Rice gallery is the University of Edinburgh's very own art venue, tucked in a corner of the grand Old College, built in the second half of the 18th century, and worth a visit for itself. The gallery is on the last floor and...More

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers
that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
