Evening Visits

Rosslyn Chapel is available for private visits with great Scottish hospitality.

The Chapel can now be the venue for an unforgettable private visit, when visitors can enjoy exclusive access to Rosslyn Chapel, grounds and visitor centre. A typical evening visit would last for 2 hours and include a talk or tour from one of our Guides then the chance to look round, inside and outside, at a leisurely pace. Our Visitor Centre and gift shop would normally be open throughout the evening.
