Henry Vaughan made an exceptional bequest to the National Galleries of Scotland in 1900 – a set of 38 radiant watercolours by celebrated English painter Joseph Mallord William Turner. This annual exhibition has become a celebrated tradition and a feature of New Year’s Day through to the end January for locals and tourists alike to look forward to; the delicately-rendered land- and sea-scapes are still in brilliant condition, having been exhibited only in low light for one month of the year – a stipulation of Vaughan’s gift. Admission is free.
