Overview
Take the stress out of planning your own way to Rosslyn Chapel and Hadrian’s Wall on a guided tour that includes round-trip transport from Edinburgh. Letting someone else drive between the dispersed landmarks allows you to focus on the scenery rather than the road. Plus, exploring the attractions with a guide means you are party to historical commentary that brings the landmarks to life.

Here you can enjoy lunch (own expense) before continuing your journey to Hadrian’s Wall. Stop at Housesteads Fort in Northumberland National Park, and take a short hike along the main wall.
