At Rosslyn Chapel, we are committed to working in a sustainable way.
This is put into practice in a number of ways – for example, using low energy light bulbs, encouraging visitors to come by public transport, supporting local suppliers through our gift shop and coffee shop, recycling and reusing paper and waste and by having sensors in the toilets to ensure that lights are switched off when not required . Our rainwater harvester helps to recycle water, our biomass boiler provides environmentally- friendly heating for the Chapel, Visitor Centre and Collegehill House and we are members of the VisitScotland ‘Cyclists Welcome‘ scheme. We also work increasingly in the local community and support several local causes. Our carpark has a charging point for electric vehicles as well as bike racks for cyclists to use. Inside the Chapel, the sand under the votive candles comes from recycled glass from bottles in our coffee shop!
Rosslyn Chapel Trust works with Changeworks to recycle our paper, cardboard, plastic and cans.
The Trust has a ‘gold’ award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme, which recognises and helps to improve our sustainability.
