Rosslyn Chapel

Rosslyn Chapel (StreetView)
Rosslyn Chapel, properly named the Collegiate Chapel of St Matthew, was founded on a small hill above Roslin Glen as a Roman Catholic collegiate church in the mid-15th century. The chapel was founded by William Sinclair, 1st Earl of Caithness of the Sinclair family, a noble family descended from Norman knights, using the standard designs the medieval architects made available to him.

In later years the Chapel has featured in speculative theories regarding Freemasonry and the Knights Templar.
