Stuart & Anthony’s Tour of Edinburgh and Rosslyn Chapel

Stuart & Anthony at the Palace of HolyroodhouseWe welcomed Stuart and Anthony from Hong Kong on a private guided sightseeing tour of Edinburgh and Rosslyn Chapel.

Despite the heavy rain, sleet and hail stones we visited the Old and New Towns, Palace of Holyroodhouse, Calton Hill, Grassmarket and Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh. Tea along with scones and shortbread were a very welcome respite from the rain in the Tea Room at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.

We had lunch at Whitmuir Farm near West Linton in Peeblesshire where we had delicious homemade leek and tattie soup – something that was much needed on a cold dreich day.

The sun eventually made a brief appearance for our visit to Rosslyn Chapel then the ruins of Roslin Castle. The chapel was built between 1446 & 1484 and has been described as an “Architectural Wonder” and a “Library in Stone” as virtually every surface of the building is covered in carvings. The chapel was used as part of the set for the 2006 Hollywood blockbuster of Dan Brown’s novel, The Da Vinci Code.

Stuart and Anthony certainly experienced ‘four seasons in one day’ of Scottish weather on their tour with us.
