Rosslyn Chapel has been named ‘best visitor attraction’ in the regional final of the Scottish Thistle Awards.
The winners of the Central South East Regional Finals were announced on Wednesday, 11 November, at a dinner at Prestonfield House Hotel, in Edinburgh.

Since completing the major conservation project at Rosslyn Chapel, our focus has been to keep enhancing the visitor experience and this award is great recognition for all members of our team who work hard to ensure that coming to the Chapel is one of the best visitor experiences in Scotland’.
