About this product
- DescriptionRight on the doorstep of Scotland's capital city, Midlothian lies just a few miles south of Edinburgh city centre. Located close to the hustle and bustle of city life, yet with all the peace and tranquility of the countryside, Midlothian is a county of contrasts. The historical buildings and pretty mining villages offer a glimpse into the past, while new residential and commercial developments help shape the present-day landscape. Midlothian is an area steeped in history, with battle sites and ancient monuments at almost every turn. The picturesque village of Roslin, once the site of the Battle of Roslin (1303), is home to one of Scotland's most remarkable buildings: Rosslyn Chapel. With intricate carvings on every surface, Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code has brought the chapel to the world's attention in more recent times, and today it attracts tourists to Midlothian from far and wide.
