Overview
More
Rosslyn Chapel, dating back to 1446, is just seven miles from Edinburgh city centre and is open to visitors all year. The Chapel's setting and the mysterious symbolism of its ornate stonework have attracted and intrigued visitors for generations. A starring role in The Da Vinci Code propelled it into the international spotlight. There are countless theories, myths and legends associated with the Chapel and our tour guides will be able to tell you more about these, and the building's history, when you visit. Please note that photography inside the Chapel is not allowed but there are no restrictions on outside photography. New visitor centre with touch-screen technology, letting you see the carvings close up; gift shop and good coffee shop. Full details of how to get here and what to see and do is on our website.

This place is remarkable! The stone work is fascinating, intricate, and covers the inside and outside of this historic structure. Definitely worth the trip, was my favorite site in Scotland.

Rosslyn Chapel has a long history and is filled with symbolic masonry, a great deal of which can be explained but much of which is still being interpreted even today. Superb examples of the stone mason's skill abound and the lectures given by knowledgeable guides...More
