This place is a very useful and interesting use of an old communal wash house or, in Scots, a steamie. The printmakers make very good use of it. There is nice wee shop in the reception area and, of course, many superb examples of artists'...More

The exhibition that we went to here on epigenetics was really interesting. The gallery is quite small but overlooks the workshop. We probably spent about 20 minutes there. You can also buy prints there.

Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to
malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton
have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a
mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village
