ROSSLYN CHAPEL

Rosslyn Chapel was founded by Sir William St Clair in 1446 and is still owned by the Sinclair family. It is famously ornate, packed full of wonderful carvings; yet it is a fraction of the enormous church that Sir William proposed to construct but never finished. Rosslyn is a magnet for mystics, conspiracy theorists, fans of Dan Brown's 'Da Vinci Code' and, of course, lovers of history and beautiful buildings.
