An innovative new partnership will make it easier for people to visit the world famous Rosslyn Chapel.

From the beginning of September the new Borders Railway – which opens to passengers on 6 September – will be used, thanks to a deal between the Chapel and Aerial ABW taxis

Taxis will shuttle travellers from the new Eskbank station to Rosslyn Chapel. Trains are due to run on the line every half hour, from Monday to Saturday, and hourly on Sundays.

The Borders Railway will provide a service to the public for the first time since 1969, between Edinburgh, Midlothian and the Scottish Borders.

Ian Gardner, Director of Rosslyn Chapel Trust said: “The new railway will greatly improve access to Midlothian and this partnership will make it even easier to visit Rosslyn Chapel by public transport.’. The journey from Edinburgh to Eskbank will take 18 minutes and the journey from Tweedbank to Eskbank will take 37 minutes. The taxi journey to Rosslyn Chapel will take around a further 10 minutes.”
