I'd heard about this place so often and when I finally got there was absolutely amazed at the stonework outside but particularly inside the building. Definitely worth a visit.

Steven B's tour of Rosslyn Chapel, Dunfermline Abey and Stirling Casle was very enjoyable. He gave a great history of Edinburg, early Scotland and Robert the Bruce, he made the trip very enjoyable. The only think I would change would be for not stop at the bridges to allow more
