Chapel takes its place in the Great Tapestry of Scotland

A panel showing some of Rosslyn Chapel’s carvings has gone on display as part of the Great Tapestry of Scotland.

The Chapel’s Apprentice Pillar, Green Man, angel carvings –  and even William the Chapel Cat – feature in the panel, which took 450 hours of stitching, by seven skilled embroiderers, to complete.

The Great Tapestry of Scotland comprises 160 panels and depicts over 12,000 years of Scottish history across its 140-metre length. It is on display at the Scottish Parliament until 21 September. Further details are available at
