Cosa farete

Many people visit the enigmatic Rosslyn Chapel with it's fascinating history and links to the Da Vinci Code, Holy Grail and Knights Templar. However, many people do not realise the real magic of Rosslyn lies in the glen and ruined castle beneath the chapel. After a tour of the chapel, we will undertake a fascinating explore of this stunning glen with a highland bard, exploring the landscape through its myths and legends showing you its hidden treasures, such as the aptly named deva of the glen.

Next onto a wonderful secret garden, set in over 7 acres, it has its own gin distillery and produces artisan gins, stocked in the Fortnum and Masons in London. The gins have interesting properties and change colour when mixed with tonic water, the changes are all due to natural properties of the herbs used to infuse the gins. After a delicious lunch, we will have a tour of the gardens with its owner regarding the use of herbs through the centuries. You will have a chance to see the drying rooms and distillery and understand how these amazing gins are made, the smell in the drying rooms is divine. We will then have a private gin tasting, a great way to finish your special day.
Other things to note
Please ensure you have good footwear as the ground we walk in the glen is uneven, narrow and sometimes steep paths, bring waterproof clothing in case it is raining. Soft drinks only provided at lunch
