Roslin

Just 6 mi/10 km of Edinburgh, Roslin is home to Rosslyn Chapel, which is shrouded in legends linking it to the Knights Templar and Christian mysticism. Fans of Dan Brown's novels will recognize the chapel from the climax of The Da Vinci Code. Portions of the subsequent film starring Tom Hanks were filmed at the chapel, as well. The ornate Gothic carvings throughout the building are fascinating.
