ROSSLYN CHAPEL to St Andrews via Edinburgh.
In reaction to popular demand, particularly from overseas, we have established a route from Rosslyn Chapel to Edinburgh, where it picks up St Margaret’s Way to St Andrews .
This should prove popular to visitors to Edinburgh who can make the easy journey by public transport to Rosslyn Chapel, only 13 kilometres south west of Edinburgh and a 30 minutes ride by public transport.
In addition, Michael Turnbull, the writer and broadcaster, is prepared to give groups a powerpoint presentation and guided tours at Rosslyn Chapel without charge. Please see the website for contact details

The scallop shell has become the symbol of pilgrimage and our current badge combines that with the Saltire. Can you provide a better design? Please visit the website and add your ideas and comment in A BETTER BADGE in the Further thoughts and comments section of the FORUM
