In 1787, Robert Burns wrote ‘Epigram At Roslin Inn’ when visiting the now named College Hill house adjacent to the chapel.
My blessings on ye, honest wife! I ne’er was here before; Ye’ve wealth o’ gear for spoon and knife- Heart could not wish for more. Heav’n keep you clear o’ sturt and strife, Till far ayont fourscore, And while I toddle on thro’ life, I’ll ne’er gae by your door!
To celebrate the much loved Scottish poet, childen from Roslin After School Club visited the Chapel’s visitor centre for a craft afternoon.
Also to mark Burns Night, there was a Family Challenge Prize Draw, running throughout the day with a challenge to write your very own poem about your visit to the chapel, just like Burns did when visiting the Inn.
