About The Rosslyn Chapel & Scottish Borders Day Tour:
Given the international profile and cultural associations of the famous Highlands, the green and pleasant beauty of the Scottish Border region is often overlooked. But if a top-notch and unique sightseeing experience is what you seek then this area is not one to miss.
Join your tour guide and fellow passengers in uncovering the myths and legends surrounding Rosslyn Chapel, which inspired Dan Brown's bestseller 'The Da Vinci Code'. Visit the architectural gem of Melrose Abbey, burial place of Robert the Bruce's heart. And finally, ready your camera for Scott's View, a breathtaking vantage point overlooking the Tweed Valley and Eildon Hills.
