A Shorter Day Tour visiting Rosslyn Chapel, Scott’s View & Melrose Abbey.

Following lunch in Melrose you will make your way to the stunning 15th century Rosslyn Chapel, immortalised in Dan Brown’s “Da Vinci Code” and you can find out more about the myths and legends surrounding the whereabouts of the “Holy Grail”
