Rosslyn Chapel Way

SE Scotland, 1 day, Folklore

Rosslyn Chapel Way, 1 day, 12 miles – This new pilgrimage follows the route of the stone that was used to build Rosslyn Chapel, from its source in the earth into a sacred building of extraordinary beauty and mystery. The ancient landscape has been used and inhabited by people from pre-history yet it retains a wildness and vigour that lends itself to a journey of prayer and contemplation. The route starts in the village of Carlops, and Part 1, an upland walk, along country roads through moorland with stunning views of the Pentland Hills, ends in Penicuik, where you can find local shops and cafés. Part 2 takes you along footpath and cycleway through woodland and gentle riverside, till you reach the dramatic gorge of Roslin Glen and the last ascent to Rosslyn Chapel. You can start your pilgrimage at any point; Carlops, Penicuik and Roslin all have public transport links. If you wish to visit Rosslyn Chapel at the end of your journey, please check for opening times.
