The Scottish National Portrait in Edinburgh – home to a bust of James Watt (and other pieces linked to the inventor) – is staging free gallery tours. The next ones are taking place on Saturday, November 2.
A spokesperson said: “To coincide with the bicentenary celebrations of Scottish engineer James Watt, historian Alastair Learmont will consider key figures in the NGS collection whose work and legacy embody the spirit of Enlightenment Scotland.”
The tours will run from 2-2.45 p.m. and 3-3.45 p.m. on November 2. More information is on the Gallery website.
No ticket is necessary, just turn up.
