Create an itinerary including Rosslyn Chapel
A location associated with the Knights Templar, Rosslyn Chapel is the setting for many stories involving alternative histories. However, these stories are more fantasy than fact, and the chapel stands today as a remarkable historical and architectural landmark. The rich medieval and Gothic architecture rewards a careful eye with a wealth of hidden symbols--many have tried to interpret their meaning. Attend one of the free introductory talks on the chapel's history that take place daily. Don't leave the basement out of your tour: There you will find the architect's original plans sketched on the wall. To visit Rosslyn Chapel on your trip to Roslin, use our Roslin trip planner.

  • Absolutely fascinating visit. Read some complaints about the cost of admission, but I disagree with these. The money collected is obviously well managed and used to preserve a truly unique cultural heritage. The talk given in the chapel is perfect in it's length, descriptiveness, and information. I would highly recommend making a visit.
  • The chapel has amazing history and stone carving. Visited on a Thursday afternoon which was quiet and had enough time to admire the interior. Staff was very helpful too. The castle ruin 10 minutes away was also well worth the visit.
