Auf diesem Ausflug in die Scottish Borders besuchen Sie die Rosslyn-Kapelle und erfahren die Wahrheit über den Heiligen Gral. Sie lernen die tatsächliche Geschichte der berühmten Rosslyn-Kapelle kennen und besuchen das zauberhafte Städtchen Melrose.
Die Sehenswürdigkeiten Melrose Abbey und Rosslyn Chapel wurden kurz beschrieben, es wurde aber auf die lokalen Guides verwiesen. Die Mittagspause war insofern ein Flop, als der Guide nicht wusste, dass das vorgesehene Lokal geschlossen hatte.
Für das Wetter am Scotts view Nebel kann der Guide nichts .
Our driver/guide Amy drove us safely to Roslyn Chapel where we paid for a visit to the grounds, which included a short tour with a guide. She then walked us to the ruins of a castle situated next to a stream and county park, Roslyn Glen. Along the way she gave commentary and answered our questions. She played Scottish music, too. We drove to Melrose Abbey where we paid for a visit to the grounds which included an audio guide. Climb the steps to the lookout in the abbey where you can get a close-up view of the bagpipe playing pig and dog gargoyles, and a scenic view of the abbey from above. We had time for lunch in the quaint town and then drove back to Edinburgh after stopping at a scenic view of the lowlands. The tour stops and starts near the North Bridge.
There is beautiful country side to see The tour was informative and our guide was very knowledgeable We spent hour and a half in both places which was enough to see the sites. The only down side was there was no real link to the DaVinci code during the talks. Historically very informative 4.5 /5 for this tour Worth it just don’t expect the daVinci experience
I definitely would recommend this tour--I only gave it 4 stars, because we only spent a little over an hour at Roselyn Chapel and would have loved to stay longer--it was not enough time. The guide was entertaining and knowledgeable--booked through Viator and Rabbies was the name of the tour company--definitely recommend them!
I had really looked forward to this tour and was not disappointed. Mr. Creighton the tour guide was very informative and funny with a lot of knowledge of the area and the history. Loved Scott's View - what a wonderful vista of the countryside! Rosslyn Chapel did not disappoint, either. What a beautiful old church. So much history and so many beautiful carvings. Well worth the day to see all this.
