Green thistle


According to legend, the ancient village of Roslin was founded by the Picts in the 1st century. Situated just seven miles south of Edinburgh, the village is famous for its Rosslyn Chapel, which is featured in the Da Vinci Code book by Dan Brown. The stunning Gothic-style building features pinnacles, gargoyles and flying buttresses, and has been the subject of numerous conspiracy theories. There is also the peaceful Roslin Glen Country Park, great for picturesque walks by the riverside.
