This page has moved toThe Sinclair family has produced many works of architecture over the years, but probably the most unusual is Rosslyn Chapel. It was built by Earl William Sinclair, beginning in 1446, when he was Earl of Orkney.
Here are some pictures of Rosslyn Chapel by Gretchen Phillips. The pillar to the right front with the helical design is the apprentice pillar In the many pictures by Richard Huseth there are several detailed pictures of this pillar. See also Ward Ginn's picture and discussion of the the stained angel of Rosslyn Chapel.
Nearby is Roslin Castle, with its legend of the The Hound of Roslin. See also the writeup about the Battle of Rosslyn, by John Ritchie, commissioned by Ian Sinclair.

Hi. got the word that you want to know about the story of this lady, there are two sorties of a white lady.
The most important one is about the White Lady that is the spirit of the engrailed cross, one might call her the guarden angel of Rosslyn, specially the Chapel.
It has been said that at some time she will appeal blowing a trumpet and the way into the Chapel will be revealed.
There was a play written Judy Fisken's son telling of this story, which I have seen two times, very moving.
