  • Several exhibitions a year. Price reductions for members of historic Scotland. Curators and exhibitions are superb, but queues for tickets are long and slow.
  • Great place to go if you want to view all things Royal and Scottish history. Great wee teamroom, good value for money.
  • Great tour. Audio sets were included in the price. Beautiful gardens and worth the admission price. Under 20 pounds.
  • Nice facade but did not have time to spend to see the museum/gallery but still this is a great place to see
  • Friendly staff and a great free audio guide too. Haggis was lovely too in the cafe!
