Senior School Art pupils visit Edinburgh


It was an early start on Saturday for the Senior School Art pupils on a day trip to Edinburgh. There was something to see for everyone including their first stop at the Scottish National Gallery, situated in the heart of Edinburgh and home to one of the best collections of fine art in the world. This was followed by a visit to the National Museum where they saw world-class collections which took them on a journey through the history of Scotland, the wonders of nature and diverse cultures from around the globe.

After lunch pupils enjoyed a tour of Mary King's Close where they experienced over 400 years of history. From myths and legends, to the deadly plague epidemic, and a famous royal visitor – there was a myriad of tales on this guided tour. 

The final visit of the day was to the Royal Scottish Academy, a bright, elegant Georgian gallery built in 1826, housing modern art and architecture exhibitions.
