Our first stop after leaving the airport and getting our rental car. First, a shout out to Paula for driving. I know I posted driving in the U.K. in previous posts, but this is where I watched and tried to learn. Paula I would say was an expert driver, left or right side, the “stick shift” as we Americans call it. I would call myself a lucky novice!
Lots of people might think Da Vinci Code and well they would be right to think this, but this Chapel has been around a lot longer than the Dan Brown book and movie. Click here to learn about Rosslyn Chapel
The weather was cool and cloudy, just perfect for a Scotland day, especially after hours of travel through airports and plane changing.
Sadly we were not allowed to take pictures inside. I wanted to sneak a few and I think Paula might have?, but I was worried they would kick us out. We were able to listen to representative from the chapel talk about the chapel and its history.
In my video, a chapel cat named William appeared in our laps. William the Cat He is the resident cat and has quite the following. He liked Paula. He sat with me a bit, but liked her more. He was adorable.
We did not spend too much time here, but we stopped in the cafe for a coffee and treat. Reading the website provides a lot of information. The chapel is not huge but has a really interesting history.
Coming to Scotland, we had a big agenda. After visiting the beautiful Rosslyn Chapel, we headed out to Dunfermline Castle…..
Catch me on the journey…
