There isn't an awful lot left there to see. Steep, muddy walk up from the park. Must've been imposing in it's day!
We stayed for 4 nights in the castle from 10/2/14 and had possibly the most memorable holiday ever. The castle was well presented upon arrival with a small welcome pack and fresh flowers. The housekeeper had organised for logs to be delivered. We managed to get our Mercedes ML across the bridge, but it was a bit stressful as it... More
Its a fascinating red sandstone ruin and although there is not a great deal left there are a few clues as to what it used to look like. The remains of a tower wreathed in ivy and various arches indicate a grand entrance. If you like old castles, history and ruins this is a must see and its free.
We have stayed at several Landmark Trust properties but wanted to do something really special for our twentieth wedding anniversary. Rosslyn Castle did not disappoint. It is true that getting the car across the bridge (in both directions) was two of the most stressful experiences of my life. But, we managed it without a divorce and without damage to the... More
This ws one of the high points of my trip covering Scotland. The Castle is remarkable as well as the Chapel. Both have ties to the book "The Divinci Code." Also is their connections to the Knights Templar's. The artisan work in stone is very impressive. If you can try to attend a Sunday service at the chapel.
Lovely little walk on a sunny day to see the castle. Go to the chapel first to gain some historical context for the castle and the st clair family
Believe it or not we actually stayed at Rosslyn Castle for 4 nights in August. It can be rented through the Landmark Trust in the UK, a fine organization which puts most of its money back into maintaining its historic properties. We had a fabulous time. It sleeps 7. One bedroom with a queen size bed, two with 2 single... More
I visited Rosslyn Castle upon leaving the much grander attraction of Rosslyn Chapel and it can be found down a small country lane about 250 yards from the car park. After having just left Rosslyn Chapel I was slightly disappointed at what I found in that it is a ruin and there is no information available to enlighten the intrepid... More
Rosslyn Castle is tucked away and not very well sign posted. Not many people seem to realise it's there, and indeed I think some of the reviewers here think that the chapel and castle are one and the same thing! The castle is completely free to visit as it is just ruins. There is a cottage on site to rent... More
Once we finished seeing Rosslyn Chapel, we could hardly leave without a peek at the remains of Roslin Castle, just a few minutes down the path that leads south out of the chapel's car park. The footpath is paved, and ivy-covered walls and small yellow flowers line much of the way. Along the path, look for the stone bench in... More
