Scottish National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery in Edinburgh has been closed for refurbishment for what feels like years.  Actually it is years - maybe three or even four?  It used to drop pieces of building onto passers by, so a renovation was pretty necessary.  It looks amazing and is due to reopen on St Andrew's Day - 30 November 2011.  Can't wait!  In the meantime I am really enjoying the blog created by people working on the restoration.  Lots of them are just young people getting the chance to be involved.  I have put a link to the blog beneath the photograph

Refurbishment of the Portrait Gallery includes the restoration of this magnificent Arts and Crafts building.

  1. Well if they've done a good job in refurbishing this as they have done with the museum, I'll be pleased. Look forward to it opening.
