Rosslyn Castle (Roslin Castle) Tours and Activities

While the town of Roslin is most famous for Rosslyn Chapel, it’s also the site of a beautiful ruined castle. Rosslyn Castle (also written Roslin Castle) sits on a tree-covered cliff on the north bank of the North Esk River, and while a castle has occupied the grounds since the fourteenth century, the current ruins mostly date back to 1622, when finishing touches were completed. In 1650, Rosslyn Castle was besieged by Oliver Cromwell’s troops, and what was left after cannon and mortar fire is what you see today.

A few of the castle’s more habitable rooms were fully restored and furnished by the current Earl of Rosslyn during the 1980s. Today, visitors can rent out the rooms as vacation accommodation through The Landmark Trust.
