The next destination that I am sharing with you is Roslin, a village in Scotland. Roslin is the home place of Rosslyn chapel, which was made famous by Dan Brown’s book The Da Vinci Code and the homonymous movie. As my past day trips in this series, this day trip was also organised for the Photographic Society of The University of Edinburgh.
During the trip, we followed this walking route in Roslin Glen starting from the Rosslyn Chapel.
Roslin is about 45 minutes from Edinburgh by bus 37. The bus stops at various locations in Edinburgh including the Edinburgh Bus Station. Once in Roslin get off at the Original Rosslyn Hotel bus stop. There is a bus every 20-30 minutes.
Things to do
The must-see place in Roslin is the Rosslyn Chapel. The entrance to the chapel costs £9.00 per adult (£7.00 for concessions) and children enter for free. Once inside, spend some time looking at the engraved details of the building. The chapel’s brochure has a basic explanation of the most important objects to see, but if you want more make sure to buy a guide book.
Before leaving Roslin, spend some time walking in Roslin Glen and pass by the ruins of the Roslyn Castle.
