Rosslyn Chapel, Roslin

4.5
A location associated with the Knights Templar, Rosslyn Chapel is the setting for many stories involving alternative histories. However, these stories are more fantasy than fact, and the chapel stands today as a remarkable historical and architectural landmark. The rich medieval and Gothic architecture rewards a careful eye with a wealth of hidden symbols--many have tried to interpret their meaning. Attend one of the free introductory talks on the chapel's history that take place daily. Don't leave the basement out of your tour: There you will find the architect's original plans sketched on the wall. To visit Rosslyn Chapel on your trip to Roslin, use our Roslin trip planner .

  • Excellent commentary by Maureen! Really interesting and enjoyable. If you're in the area, I would definitely recommend going to have a look. Great coffee shop with reasonably priced food and drinks. Also reasonably priced gifts and memorabilia.
  • Magical, Beautiful, Stunning. I could have spent days in here. I became a life member. Read the book by the Earl of Rosslyn. Truly fascinating and very well written. Wonderful friendly and knowledgeable staff. If you are visiting Scotland you cannot miss Rosslyn Chapel.
