The last bus at 6.30pm !

Good place to visit and cheap, better that Rosslyn Chapel, you can have with your kids if they like adventures in the woods. Don't forget that the last bus going back to Edinburgh... read more

Went on a day trip from Edinburgh. Visited the castle by walking along a trail going through Rosslyn Glen. Beautiful forestry and a lovely walk.

If you are visiting Scotland you must see the chapel before you leave. The carvings are beautiful. I cannot describe how beautiful is the chapel. May be you have heard or read many about the Chapel but you must see it with your own eyes. Also just make a walk down and see the ruins of the Rosslyn Castle.Stay long... More

15th century chapel that is truly a magnificent piece of architecture in that there is not one square inch of the inside chapel that does not have a beautiful carving. You cannot take pictures inside now because of the injuries people sustained from running into each other while trying to take pictures after the film Da Vinci Code. It truly... More

We were invited to Rosslyn to celebrate a friends birthday, his wish to be a Laird for the Weekend, his wish was granted. This is your chance to experience going back in history and living in a deferent era, make the most of it. The house/Castle sleeps 7 in four rooms with a bath upstairs. On the ground floor there...

Looking at other reviews some seem to be about the castle ruins and others about the holiday accommodation managed by the Landmark Trust. This is a review of the castle ruins, not of the holiday accommodation. As far as we could see only the ruins of the old gatehouse are accessible (free of charge), as the rest of the site... More

Yes it is a ruin but lovely to look around and free. The surrounding trees are lovely and beginning to change colour. The kids enjoyed running around and playing in the stream down below it. I think the house is a guest house would be a cool place to stay. Worth a look around if you have the time.

I don't know if we missed something but we walked down and just saw a pile of bricks surrounded by scaffolding! The views and grounds surrounding this were lovely though so I would recommended the walk down. However this is probably not wheelchair friendly due to the steep hill back up and cobbles.
