In a break from my usual walking around Edinburgh, I decided to travel a wee bit further.
I took a bus to Roslin a small village to the south of Edinburgh famous for the ancient Rosslyn Chapel. I was teaching at Roslin primary School when Tom Hanks turned up for filming of The Da Vinci Code. Of course, no one was allowed anywhere near the chapel or the set. However, he did manage a wave out the window of his chauffeur driven car as he passed.
I spent a couple of hours wandering around Rosslyn Chapel before going down to Rosslyn Castle which is now a private dwelling and let out. I then walked back up to the village and set off along the path to Loanhead and Polton.
