Description

Dig into the history and heritage that envelop the Lothian region on this full-day guided tour. Explore the inspiring landscapes of the Scottish Borders and visit the 15th-century Rosslyn Chapel to be captivated by tales of Masonic symbolism.

Your morning starts with a drive down to the Scottish Borders. Stop at the Scott’s View lookout point to take in far-reaching vistas over the verdant valley of the River Tweed and the 3 peaks of Eildon Hill. This was a favourite viewpoint of writer Sir Walter Scott – make sure to photograph one of the most famous views in Scotland before making your way to the Victorian stone tower of the Wallace Monument.

Continue to the tiny town of Melrose, home to the magnificent ruins of the Melrose Abbey. Dating back to 1136, this former Cistercian monastery is one of four Border abbeys founded by King David and the burial place of Robert the Bruce's heart. See if you can spot the comical gargoyle of a bagpipe-playing pig hidden amid the graceful architecture before enjoying lunch and continuing on to Roslin.

In Roslin – the battle site of the First War of Scottish Independence – visit the enigmatic, ornately carved Rosslyn Chapel. This mysterious and beautiful building is known for its cryptic carvings and captivating legends about Freemasonry, the Knights Templar and the Holy Grail, and the chapel features in Dan Brown's best-selling novel The Da Vinci Code. Admire the exceptional architecture before returning to Edinburgh.
