Scottish Art Gallery Showcasing Scottish Fine Art and Paintings


Fidra Fine Art Relocates to Gullane

After 6 years trading from our home on Dirleton Avenue in North Berwick, Fidra Fine Art are relocating the gallery to the property on Main Street, Gullane which was previously occupied by Gullane Art Gallery.

We have a built up a comprehensive list of some of the most notable artists working in Scotland today and feel the time is right to move into a more traditional high street space. We look forward to continuing the good work that Roy and Gail McGregor have done in establishing the gallery in Gullane whilst introducing new artists and our own ideas.

We would like to thank all our customers and artists who have supported us over the years in North Berwick and hope that you will continue to do so by making the short trip along to Gullane to see us.

We are aiming to open the doors on Saturday 26th May but please keep an eye on our website for updates. Our opening exhibition will feature new work by a variety of our existing artists as well as one or two historical pieces with local interest.

Until then we are happy to arrange appointments at the gallery in North Berwick to view the current Mixed Exhibition and any of the other available artworks on our website.

New address will be – 7-8 Stanley Road, Gullane, East Lothian EH31 2AD.

Featured Artist


Astrid Trügg
Astrid was born in the Netherlands in 1972. In 1991 she graduated from the Utrecht School of Art with a degree in painting.
Inspired by Edinburgh and the Scottish coastline, Astrid moved to Scotland in 2003 where she successfully completed a post graduate course at the Leith School of Art. In 2010 she has moved to the city of Amersfoort in the Netherlands and later to Hertfordshire and has now moved back to Scotland, where she continues to work from her studio at Coburg House Art Studios in Leith.
Astrid always had deep interest in architecture, shapes and contours of the cityscape and harbours. Later she also turned her attention to Still Life.
She chooses everyday objects attracted by their simple shapes or textures, or objects that have a reference to the seaside. These things bring back memories of her childhood, family history and travels, or have had a history that reflects this. Although she surrounds herself with these objects, she paints them from what is in her head.
By working with collage, pigments and gesso, she is able to work back into layers of paint, which create fascinating textures that reflect these interests.
