Scotland has a wealth of haunted castles, houses, hotels and graveyards. Here is one that you might like to visit . . . if you are brave enough!!

Haunted Place : Roslyn Chapel

Rosslyn Chapel was founded on a small hill above Roslin Glen as a Roman Catholic collegiate church in the mid-15th century. Rosslyn Chapel and the nearby Roslin Castle are located at the village of Roslin, Midlothian, Scotland.

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 mediaeval architects made available to him.

Since the novel and movie “The Da Vinci Code” the chapel has been alive with visitors. But it is the dead that remain when the visitors depart. Of the many sightings at Roslyn, the most common is that of the apprentice who carved the famous Apprentice Pillar. Apparently he was murdered by his teacher who was jealous of the quality of his work. The apprentice can still be heard putting those final touches to his eternal pillar.
