The Shetland Gallery was established in 2012 and is the most northerly art gallery in the British Isles. The gallery showcases the best of contemporary Shetland art and high-end crafts and supports outstanding young talent, exploring ways to unearth the future artists of Shetland.
The Scottish National Portrait Gallery was designed by Sir Robert Rowand Anderson as a shrine for Scotland’s heroes and heroines. It opened to the public in 1889 as the world’s first purpose-built portrait gallery. Displays at the Gallery explore different aspects of the story of Scotland and her people, told through a wealth of imagery including portraits of famous historical figures through to more recent pioneers in science, sport and the arts.
