Looking after our places

Rosslyn Chapel Trust is responsible for the care and maintenance of Rosslyn Chapel (Category A listed), Rosslyn Castle (Category A Listed), Collegehill House (Category B Listed) as well as an area of Roslin Glen. Since 1995, the Trust has undertaken major conservation projects at all three buildings as well as ongoing routine repairs to footpaths in the Glen. The three buildings require constant attention and maintenance to ensure that future generations can appreciate them. You can support this work by making a donation here.


Inspiring new generations

Our learning programmes inspire children to learn about Rosslyn Chapel, its unique carvings and its place in medieval life. Working with mostly primary schools within Midlothian, our programmes range from ‘dragon’ workshops for P1 to our long-standing  programme with Roslin primary, when children in P7 become our Junior Tour Guides and host visits from other schools. The Trust is responsible for developing the programmes, sometimes with the help of external partners, and we generally will pay transport costs for local schools to visit.  You can support this work by making a donation here


Telling our stories 

Rosslyn Chapel has intrigued and attracted visitors for generations. The Trust is gathering a collection of items which reflect this interest such as Victorian postcards and early souvenirs. In 2023, the Trust acquired two antique guidebook for the Chapel, dated 1827 and 1838. Both will require some conservation treatment and will eventually be displayed in the Chapel’s Visitor Centre. We are grateful that some conservation work will funded by the Gordon Fraser Charitable Trust. You can support this work by making a donation here
