We parked here and had a walk round the park, then we started looking to see how we could walk from the park to Rosslyn Chapel, we did make it but its a very steep narrow mucky path with over 100 steps up towards the old cemetery & chapel, we did make it to Rosslyn Chapel from the park.

Nature abounds - easy to see why so many poets and artists were drawn to this flurishing environment - and a small river runs through it!

We were staying at the caravan park near the chapel and walked different parts of the glen from different locations. From the caravan park, we walked down a driveway and followed a trail to some type of abandoned garden and building. We saw two massive trees similar to Oaks. Well worth a look. We then found a path leading down to the river. We were hoping to catch a glimpse of Wallaces cave, but the only path down was so steep, I would only attempt it if I was a goat!
From the Chapel, go around the cemetery, down the steps and this leads to the river and a bridge across to more walks and an abandoned factory. Another time we drove down a steep road to Rosewell and parked on the side of the road, walked through the gates and up to the old mill and abandoned buildings. If you do go across the road and into the gates, be careful! It's hard crossing the sharp bend in the road. You think it's ok to cross and then a cyclist will come down the road too fast and yell at you for almost crashing. Well, that's what happened to us. There are lots of slopes and steps within the glen and there are some flat walks. We paid for a map of the glen from Rosslyn Chapel gift shop, and that was really handy.

Take time to walk through the glen after your visit to the chapel. The bird song and plants remind you to take a breath and enjoy what nature has to offer - a chance to unwind. Make sure you have good walking shoes as heels and flip flops are not suitable. This is a circular walk and you can stop for a drink at the chapel cafe or walk another 4 mins to Roslin village for coffee or lunch.
