Scottish National Portrait Gallery

La Scottish National Portrait Gallery, fondé par le magnat de la presse John Ritchie Findlayest en 1889, est un musée d'art sur Queen Street à Édimbourg en Écosse. Elle est chargée de la conservation de la collection des portraits nationaux, qui représentent tous des Écossais, mais n'ont pas tous été réalisés par des autochtones. Elle abrite également la Scottish National Photography Collection. Le bâtiment construit entre 1885 et 1890, fut dessiné par Robert Rowand Anderson sur le modèle du palais des Doges de Venise.
