The intricate roof of the lady chapel at the east end of Rosslyn Chapel, consisting of 13 crisscrossed arches with small protruding carved cubes. Each cube is carved with a unique pattern of lines and dots, the meaning of which has puzzled experts for years. Some think that they represent a secret code, while others think the patterns are musical notes, and a tune has actually been composed to test this theory! © Edinburgh & Beyond Photography / Rosslyn Chape

The intricate 'Apprentice Pillar' in Rosslyn Chapel. The story has it that a young apprentice mason carved the pillar in his master’s absence. On his return the master's jealousy caused him to strike the apprentice over the head, killing him outright. The pillar also has eight carved dragons winding around its base, which has significance in Scandinavian mythology. © Edinburgh & Beyond Photography / Rosslyn Chapel
