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.

  • What a stunning chapel. The huge number of carvings and their individual quality is stunning. The highlight, though was the talk we received in the Chapel. A knowledgeable guide and a fascinating history, all delivered with authority and humour. What a fabulous way to spend a couple of hours. It's also worth taking a few minutes to visit what's left of the castle - not much to see, but use your imagination! Also, the tea and cakes are fantastic!!
  • Loved that place. The employee telling stories about the chapel got me captivated and I wanted more when she finished! Beautiful little chapel. I recommend walking down to the castle (what's left of it) and the bridge. Makes great photos! No camera or phone inside the chapel.
