Visited Rosslyn Chapel for the first time today, having been aware of its existence since way before Dan Brown, and was completely amazed.
The visitor centre is modern with good interactive information facilities and a lovely wee cafe with both indoor and outdoor seating.
Excellent filter coffee and soups + smoked salmon bagels and chorizo/tomato toastie. Well staffed by pleasant and pro-active people. Tables were cleaned and turned round v quickly between customers. I was impressed by the fare on offer; far better than the usual offerings.
Earlier commenters who observed that the front desk can be overly busy at times, because as well as taking entrance payments it also deals with gift shop sales, have a point. Perhaps the place is a victim of its own success.
And yes, we did have to wait to use the loo but it was a Saturday and it was busy. Not a major problem.
All the members of staff we had dealings with were pleasant and informative - especially the guide within the chapel itself.
As for the chapel?
It is stunning. We spent more than an hour wandering about looking at the stone carvings and listening to the excellent talk from the guide.
We were more than happy to pay the £9 per person entry fee. Buildings of this type do not maintain themselves and need to be kept for posterity.
Also enjoyed meeting William the cat who lives locally and wanders in and out of the chapel at will.
