    Da Vinci Code Rosslyn Chapel and Scottish Borders Day TourUncover the myths and legends around the Da Vinci code, the Knights Templar and the burial place of Robert the Bruce's heart at Melrose Abbey, in the heart of the Scottish Borders. If you’re looking for a shorter day, full of mystical history and ancient abbeys, the stunning architecture of Rosslyn and the unsung beautiful rolling hills and valleys of the Scottish Borders, then come aboard this tour.

    Scotts View - Scottish Borders TourDeparting at 9.30 your tour takes you south to the world famous Scott’s View, with stunning views over the Tweed Valley and the Eildon Hills. You will also get the opportunity to visit the original Wallace Monument.

    Following lunch in Melrose you will make your way to the stunning 15th century Rosslyn Chapel, immortalised in Dan Brown’s “Da Vinci Code” and you can find out more about the myths and legends surrounding the whereabouts of the “Holy Grail”.
