Rosslyn Chapel, dating back to 1446, is just seven miles from Edinburgh city centre and is open to visitors all year. The Chapel's setting and the mysterious symbolism of its ornate stonework have attracted and intrigued visitors for generations. A starring role in The Da Vinci Code propelled it into the international spotlight. There are countless theories, myths and legends associated with the Chapel and our tour guides will be able to tell you more about these, and the building's history, when you visit. Please note that photography inside the Chapel is not allowed but there are no restrictions on outside photography. New visitor centre with touch-screen technology, letting you see the carvings close up; gift shop and good coffee shop. Full details of how to get here and what to see and do is on our website.

This place and setting are beautiful. The grounds and ruins of an old castle are fascinating. The carvings inside the chapel are beautiful. No one seems to be able to explain why you cannot take pictures inside the chapel. It appears to be an ego...More

Forget Dan Brown, this is worth visiting for the sheer beauty of the building, its carvings and its fascinating history. Don't forget to ask the Guide about its Templar connections
