A little south of the city is the fascinating Rosslyn Chapel where the DaVinci Code was filmed.

People travel from all over the world to see the intricate carvings, and there are many different interpretations of their meanings. Myths, legends and Hollywood fiction writing have given Rosslyn a unique sense of mystery and wonder. Our next stop is Linlithgow Palace. Linlithgow Palace, in the town of Linlithgow, 15 miles west of Edinburgh, was used to represent the infamous Wentworth Prison.

George Square: considered by many to be Glasgow's City Centre. It’s a great place to start seeing the sights. The Square was designed and built in the late 19th century at the height of Glasgow's prosperity. The Victorian buildings, including the splendid City Chambers, are a grand reminder of yesteryear and are a point of pride for the city.
