New portrait unveiled of William the Chapel Cat

Artist Grace Maran has unveiled her portrait, commissioned by Rosslyn Chapel Trust, of William the Rosslyn Chapel Cat.

William was a very regular visitor, and a firm favourite for thousands of visitors, at the Chapel until he passed away in August this year, aged 17.

Grace said: ‘Having worked as a Guide at Rosslyn Chapel, I know the building  very well and, of course, knew William very well. I was delighted to be commissioned to bring both together in this painting, which I hope will be a fitting tribute to William’.

The portrait will be displayed in the Chapel’s Visitor Centre.
