Even though it was a little disappointing that photography was not allowed inside the chapel, the souvenire shop alone was enough a compensation for what my camera had missed out. I'd already over spent my budget at this point, and had only enough coins for the bus ride back to catch the coach back to Liverpool. Since I was unable to actually buy anything, I took loads of pictures of the things I might have wanted to take home, if I had more money with me.
Christmas tree in the shop.
Pentacles and templar crosses.
Can't remember what the symbol stands for...
Frigde magnets in the shape of the apprentice pillar.
The main pillar, the apprentice pillar, and the green man, well men...
I would buy the whole bookshelf, if I could.
The green man again.
There are over one hundred engravings of the green man. No one, however, can seem to comprehend the reason why this pagan symbol is so ubiquitous in this chapel. This is one of another mysteries of the chapel that might never be revealed.
Now, I can finally announce that my Edinburgh travel log has come to an end. It took me four months to write out what I did for a day and a half. I find that truly amazing. Although the pictures didn't turn out to be as impressive as I hoped they would be, I hope you have enjoyed reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them. If you have only just found my blog, you are more than welcome to read the earlier entries on your own.
