Rosslyn Castle Tours

While the town of Rosslyn is most famous for its Chapel, it’s also the site of a beautiful ruined castle. Rosslyn Castle sits on a tree-covered cliff on the north bank of the North Esk River, and while a castle has occupied the grounds since the fourteenth century, the current ruins mostly date back to 1622, when finishing touches were completed. In 1650, the castle was besieged by Oliver Cromwell’s troops, and what was left after cannon and mortar fire is what you see today.

A few of the castle’s more habitable rooms were fully resorted and furnished by the current Earl of Rosslyn during the 1980s. Today, visitors can rent out the rooms as vacation accommodation through The Landmark Trust.

Practical Info

Since Rosslyn Castle remains a private residence, it can only be viewed from the outside except in the case of paying guests.
