Roslin Glen lies just down the hillside from Rosslyn Chapel, and a wide track leads down to it, with a short diversion over a narrow bridge to the ruined Rosslyn Castle.
It's like many glens, or dens, in Lowland Scotland which are not visible from the surrounding countryside until you enter them. The steep-sided gorges and fast-flowing rivers come as quite a contrast to the gently rolling scenery above.
Roslin Glen can also be reached by car from the village of Roslin, with a large car park and a grassy area for playing as well as the short, easy low-level paths. However it is quite a steep, but short, climb up to the Chapel on the other side of the footbridge.< Back to Scotland page for links to other stories
