Beyond the Da Vinci
Why locals love it
This beautiful medieval chapel was founded in 1446 and continues to be a family-owned working church today (known as the Collegiate Church of St Matthew). Services are held on Sundays at 10.30am, with additional services in summer. Besides masses, local residents can also access the whole site free of charge, all you need is an EH25 postcode.
Why you should visit it
You might recall Rosslyn from Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code. Fortunately the search for the Holy Grail has somewhat calmed down, but the increased number of visitors helped with building a great visitor centre and funded some essential conservation work. Admission is a bit pricey, but this little gem is well worth the visit. Look for the green man!
Make it a daytrip - visit the ruins of Rosslyn Castle and have a woodland walk in the beautiful Roslin Glen.
