Welcome to Rosslyn Chapel

Rosslyn Chapel was founded in 1446 by Sir William St Clair. The beauty of its setting, in rural Midlothian, and the mysterious symbolism of its ornate stonework have inspired, attracted and intrigued writers, artists and visitors ever since.

Now open daily and each day is split into 90-minute timeslots, allowing us to manage the capacity on site.

To guarantee your visit, please book in advance through this website.
