Win a 5-star break to Edinburgh
To celebrate the opening of Summer Exhibition 2011, the Royal Academy of Arts, VisitScotland and the Scotch Whisky Experience are offering you the chance to win a 5-star break to Edinburgh, staying in the former baroque home of Edinburgh's Lord Provost.
Boasting an internationally-renowned College of Art since 1760, some of the world’s leading museums and art galleries, and home to many of Scotland’s most famous artistic sons, Edinburgh truly is full of surprises.
From Robert Scott Lauder, William Miller and Alexander Nasmyth, to Eduardo Paolozzi, a sculptor and artist born in Leith, to the world-famous portrait artist Sir Henry Raeburn, it’s no surprise that the capital city has played such an important part in the history of British art.
The city is also home to the World's Largest Collection of Scotch Whisky which is housed at the Scotch Whisky Experience located on the historic Royal Mile. It provides a spirited insight into the world of Scotland's most famous export, takes you on a bubbling barrel ride through a replica distillery, allows you to discover the aromas in Whisky, offers the chance to taste some of the country's best Whiskies and introduces you to almost 3,500 individual bottles.
