Dundas Street

Dundas Street, Edinburgh

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.
