Rosslyn Chapel
The success of Dan Brown's novel The Da Vinci Code and
the subsequent Hollywood film have seen a flood of visit-
ors descend on Scotland's most beautiful and enigmatic
church (which features in the novel's finale). Rosslyn
Chapel (formally known as the Collegiate Church of St
Matthew) was built in the mid-15th century for William St
Clair, third earl of Orkney, and the ornately carved interior
- at odds with the architectural fashion of its time - is a monument to the mason's art, rich
in symbolic imagery and shrouded in mystery.
Getting There
Lothian Buses No 15 (not
15A) runs from the west end of
Princes St in Edinburgh, to
Roslin village (£1.40, 30
minutes, every 30 minutes),
near the chapel.
