Terrain is an exhibtion of selected works from a collection of drawings, paintings and prints, including pieces by Elizabeth Blackadder, Barbara Rae and William Littlejohn. The collection was established in 1963 under the direction of artist Jack Firth, aimed at giving school pupils access to original works of art within the school environment.

Art and the Garden focuses on the motif of the garden in art and features more than 50 works from the City of Edinburgh's own collection of Scottish art. The display includes work by Ian Hamilton Finlay, William Gillies and many more.
