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 is definatly worth a visit, if you are lucky with the weather, you can enjoy the view from outside the church. Also, if you've gone on a tour in the highlands, a trip to this chapel ties in wonderfully with this. Its super easy...More

Rosslyn chapel has so much to interest a visitor and has a unique connection in history to the Knights Templar and the Freemasons. It is claimed the name derives from Scottish Gaelic where Ros means ancient knowledge and Lyn means down the ages. One of...More

Fantastic experience though its smaller than you think and I would expect in the summer it will be very busy. Not so much for under 10 year olds. Visiting in October there were few tourists and you get plenty opportunity to look around. Volunteer guides...More

We both really enjoyed the trip to Rosslyn. There was really informative talk when we arrived and we had William the lovely chapel cat sit on our bench. We used the guide to find all the interesting carvings so it was a mini treasure hunt....More

Story-telling in stone, this chapel is magnificent. If you liked Notre Dame, Chartres, St. Peter's, and Canterbury, you must check out this family chapel from the 15th century. What it might lack in scale it makes up in the quantity and quality of the sculptures....More

This chapel is a delight - compact, but packed with carvings on a scale I've never seen before. It's history so entwined with the religious wars that scarred Britain in the Middle Ages/Reformation - it rise from the ashes of hundreds of years of decay...More

No visit to Scotland should be without the short trip south of Edinburgh to see this iconic building. If you are interested in history the chapel has it all, if you like enigmas the chapel has it, if just want to feel the atmosphere go....More

if you take Lothian service 37, marked 'for Roslin', that will bring you to the village and just a few minutes' walk from the Chapel. You can get a 37 from the city centre and the journey will take 45mins approx. Full travel... More
