Roslin is an ancient village in Midlothian in Scotland situated east of the Pentland Hills on the bank of the river North Esk between Penicuik and Lasswade, 6 miles south of Edinburgh. Roslin was created a burgh in 1456 and grew with mining as its main industry until the 1960’s. The tranquil village is well-known most recently for cloning ‘Dolly the Sheep’ in the Roslin Institute in 1997 and for the architecturally interesting late-gothic Rosslyn Chapel with beautifully detailed carved stonework which includes the unique knotted Prentice Pillar at the south-east end of the Lady Chapel. Built in 1447 Rosslyn Chapel, a cruciform collegiate church of St Michael, is surrounded in mystery with associations with the Knights Templar and the Holy Grail legend and features in the best-selling fiction novel, The Da Vinci Code by Dan Brown. A little further south of the chapel stands the partial ruins of the 14th century Roslin Castle built on a rocky promontory jutting into the river. Surrounded by beautiful countryside and historic attractions the picturesque village is a popular tourist destination ideally located to explore Edinburgh and the Lothians, there are B&B’s and self-catering accommodation, shops and amenities and places to eat out. Roslin Glen Country Park lies to the south of the chapel and castle and the Rosslyn Tours offer guided tours of the area and attractions.
