We, a group of 20, were fortunate to have a candlelight private tour of the chapel with a private reception following. This was prearranged and there was a charge. The guide took us through the history and let us alone but remained nearby, to explore...More

This was the second visit to Roslin Chapel for us. This time we waited and had the talk from one of the guides. Well worth the wait.

This place is absolutely magical! You feel certain energy when you enter this place :-) It’s a small 15th century chapel (and a working one, we were told!) but the artwork is brilliant, especially the Apprentice pillar, carvings and rooftop. Everything inside has a story....More
