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 .

From the entrance with an encounter with William the Cat at two columns at the bottom of the Chapel, a continuous surprise, wonder, gather. Magic!
This place is beautiful and ornate, but if you ha ave a small attention span like me you may greet bored easily. In which case I will task you in finding their chapel cat, and a small graveyard. The gift shop is very clean cut and well organized. You can even interact with some displays inside (including electronic ones). There is also a cafe and free toilets. You can't go wrong with visiting a famous place that has some mystery about it.
This small chapel is a beautiful place to make part of your Scotland trip. Be advised that they do not allow photos in the chapel and it may be very crowded and noisy. The staff made numerous announcements to NOT take photos which was more distracting than those sneaking photos. The facilities were very well maintained and overall a pleasurable experience.
Love this place! It's interesting, historic, scenic and truly captivating. The staff are very friendly, the tours are informative and the gift shop offers a wide variety of souvenirs. There's free parking and a modern stylish visitor centre.
Fascinating unique place. Good signage and modern visitors' centre. Well worth a visit. There is the opportunity to use your ticket to get an annual pass at no extra charge.
Very nice chapel. I loved it. Regullary I would give 5 Stars, but £9 for entry and no photography allowed. You get that information after paying. Thanks a lot.
