Rosslyn Chapel

This card was posted in 1908.

Rosslyn Chapel, with its many religious and other carvings, stands on the edge of the Esk Valley, above Rosslyn Glen, about seven miles to the south-east of Edinburgh. 

It was built in 1446 by William St Clair, third and last Prince of Orkney and has been a place of pilgrimage over the centuries.
