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.

Rosslyn Chapel is truly a rags to riches story . It's well restored stone carving is exquisite. Its part of the Earl of Rosslyn's estate and a working church but the carvngs are peerless. The building was almost derelict, somewhat neglected and in past times...More

Such a lovely place that would be especially nice to visit minus the crowds. The presentation is excellent. The brochure guide makes it easy to find specific carvings you might want to see. It's easy to imagine another time and place long ago. The gift...More

Easier probably to get to if you have a car, but it's totally do-able as a day trip by Bus from Edinburgh. We had a early coffee/scone in Edinburgh and at the north bridge caught the bus out to Rosslyn. It took about 50 minutes...More

It doesn't matter how many chapels you see in Scotland...you need to see this one! This is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen in my life. The detail work is incredible and considering they still hold mass here...pretty amazing. This church alone...More

If you are in this area, you MUST make a visit to Rosslyn Chapel. There is a magical, mystical aura that can't be described but has to be experienced. The interior of the chapel is packed full of gorgeous carvings but there is an atmosphere...More

This was a 30 minute drive outside of Edinburgh. Lovely, small chapel with interesting history. This was a stop for my husband and son due to the movie Da Vinci code. Totally recommend this as a nice diversion to the masses in the city.

Well worth your time to go see. It's NOT far from Inverness, and had we known, we might have driven ourselves or taken a taxi instead of an all-day tour...regardless, it's a worthwhile excursion. Since the movie, they've built a visitor's center and gift shop,...More

if you take Lothian service 37, marked 'for Roslin', that will bring you to the village and just a few minutes' walk from the Chapel. You can get a 37 from the city centre and the journey will take 45mins approx. Full travel... More
