Visitor Information

Rosslyn Chapel took over 40 years to build and was incomplete when Sir William St Clair, the founder, died in 1484. The beauty of its setting and the mysterious symbolism of its ornate stonework have inspired, attracted and intrigued artists, writers and visitors ever since.

Practically every surface inside and outside this unique building is carved in an outstanding display of craftsmanship, including angels, Green Men and the famous Apprentice Pillar.
