Rosslyn Chapel

On our last day in Edinburgh we decided to take the bus out to visit Rosslyn Chapel made famous these days by the DaVinci Code.

The castle was built by the Clan Sinclair who were thought to have ties to the Templars hence the whole Grail connection. The entire structure has been covered in a protective scafold that allows visitors a better look at the exterior carvings.

The chapel is very old and tiny. The amount of stone carving is extrodinary, which is why it has links to the Free Masons.

The chapel was quite amazing and we were glad we took the time to visit it.
