Dundas Street

Dundas Street, Edinburgh

We say

Sloping steeply north from the city centre towards the Firth of Forth, Dundas Street is an extension of Hanover Street, beginning from Heriot Row. The fine Open Eye Gallery at that first junction sets the tone for the next two blocks, where you can find a dozen private commercial galleries showing contemporary work – mostly Scottish or related to Scotland – ranging from populist landscapes to cutting-edge abstract work. Places such as the Scottish Gallery, the Torrance Gallery, Hanover Fine Arts, and the Edinburgh Gallery encompass the range.

Fond memories ★★★★★

I'll always have fond memories of Dundas St since it was the street I lived in when I first moved to Edinburgh. The views from the top looking down onto the Firth of Forth just cannot be beaten. Beautiful New Town buildings and interesting, offbeat shops, galleries, pubs and cafes too.
