Dance InformationAlso see the dance Rosslyn Castle by Hugh A Thurston.
Roslin Castle (sometimes spelt Rosslyn) is a partially ruined castle near the village of Roslin in Midlothian, Scotland. It is located around 9 miles south of Edinburgh, on the north bank of the North Esk and was the seat of the St Clairs of Orkney, who also built the Rosslyn Chapel, only a few hundred metres away from Roslin Castle.
There has been a castle on the site since the early 14th century (1304), when the Sinclair family, Earls of Caithness and Barons of Roslin, fortified the site, although the present ruins are of a slightly later date.
