It is as beautiful and peaceful as you can imagine. The carvings inside and out are outstanding. You can't take pictures of the inside, but that doesn't prohibit enjoying this magical chapel. The guide provides an excellent history of Rosslyn Chapel.

This was the wife's favorite stop in Scotland. The church's construction was started in 1446, and it is still in use for religious services today. You may recognize this from scenes in "The DaVinci Code." The chapel is intact, with fabulous wood and stone carvings...More

It's very beautiful and worth a visit. It doesn't take long to walk through it - be sure to either listen to the talk or read the signs so that you can fully appreciate the unique carvings. A bit overpriced for how swiftly you have...More

Well worth the trip down from Edinburgh, this exceedingly interesting chapel has SO much history attached to it! The da Vinci Code has made it popular, and the talk we were given was extremely informative. Very good indeed.

The carvings in this 500yr+ old chapel are stunning. It is a shame that photography is not allowed inside the building because I have never seen anything like this before. The talk by the guide was very interesting and offered a number of explanations about...More

Stunning carvings and very atmospheric inside. Good talk given by guide. Get there early as it gets very crowded and loses some of its charm when you are fighting your way through the yapping hordes

History in full setting! Chapel was founded in 1446. No pictures can be taken inside of Chapel. Beautiful restoration and upkeep by donations and volunteers! Bathroom available and a small cafe. Gift store with great items.
