The picturesque and romantic locality of Rosslyn lies near the Pentland Hills, 7 miles from the City of Edinburgh. The mystique of Rosslyn Chapel as the presumed repository of the lost scrolls of Solomon's Temple and the Holy Grail, and its association with the Knights Templar and the origins of Scottish Freemasonry have attracted countless artistss, writers and antiquaries for over two hundred years. By the mid-19th century, Rosslyn Chapel, Castle and Glen were firmly established upon the popular tourist itinerary of Scotalnd, and in 1842 the controversial preservation of the exquisite 15ht century Chapel drew the attention of Queen Victoria and hte Scottish painter, David Roberts. It is remarkable then, that this book should be the first to explore the architectural, pictorial and literary traditions of Rosslyn.
