Cultural Cities

A selection of internationally renowned museums and art galleries, coupled with some of the finest shopping opportunities in Britain, await your guests in Scotland’s cities. The National Gallery of Scotland and the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh host internationally important collections and regularly changing visiting exhibitions.

Edinburgh, which is easily reachable from Greenock, is also home to the Edinburgh International Festival (the world’s largest arts festival), the Edinburgh Military Tattoo, and a series of festivals and events throughout the year.

In Glasgow, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is the largest civic museum and art gallery in the UK, with collections of international importance. Housed in a specially commissioned, stunning building in parkland on the edge of the city, the Burrell Collection, comprising over 9,000 works of art, is one of the greatest collections created by one man.
