Rosslyn Chapel was the reason why I went to Edinburgh. The journey was long, and the weather was absolutely freezing, but I was overjoyed to have finally made it here. Some of the pictures may be a little blury due to my trembling hands in the cold. You may not enjoy them as much as I enjoy them myself, but I hope that one day, you will all come and see this impressive building yourselves.
When we had finally arrived and the chapel was in sight, we were a little disappointed at how different it looked in reality than the way it was presented in the film adaptation of The Da Vinci Code. However, our minds were about to be overwhelmed as we tour the inside of the chapel.
The only regret was that the time we were there, photography was not allowed inside the chapel. Therefore, I could only take pictures of the exterior, and risk my life taking one or two pictures inside it.

In order to protect the chapel from the terrible weather, this canopy was built over it. The good thing is, there is a rail you around the roof, on which you could go up and see the top of the chapel. If I remember correctly, we were told that if we were to come in April 2009, this canopy would be removed and the building will be standing on its own.
This is the crypt in the, film adaptation of The Da Vinci Code, where Robert Langdon and Sophie goes to find the alleged resting place of 'the grail'. There was no other room but this tiny little space. And not completely unexpectly, we were told that during the process of filming, the crew had left something in the crypt as they removed a prop they had stucked on for the movie.
Apologies for the blurriness of the picture. But you cannot imagine how cold we were at this point. There was no heat in the building and the outside was just as cold as the inside.
This was taken on the rail.
This is Scotland...in the rain.
The garden of the chapel. There was no sign of the 'pond' where Sophie attempted to 'walk on water'.
