My boyfriend (now husband) proposed to me in this chapel while on our first trip outside North America. We had both always dreamed of going to Scotland, and finally decided to do it. It was such a great trip, wish I could go back. Once our son is old enough to sit through a 7 -8 hour flight, we'll definitely go back for a visit. If you're looking for a place to propose to your significant other, I would definitely recommend St. Margaret's Chapel :) Although my now-husband had to wait for his opportunity to propose, due to the tiny size of the chapel, and all the people coming in and out since it's a major tourist attraction. But it was worth the wait, I was impressed! As other reviewers have noted, try and avoid busy times because it's so small and can get crowded easily. It's the oldest building in Edinburgh Castle, and the oldest building in Edinburgh if I recall correctly. There is so much history in Scotland, I loved it - coming from Ontario, Canada, the oldest historic buildings I've seen are from the 1800s. I think St. Margaret's chapel is from around 1100 - crazy!
