Two visitors’ books, dating back nearly 110 years, have been returned to Rosslyn Chapel after being discovered in a house in Fife.

The books, recording visitors to the chapel from 1904, were uncovered while clearing a house in St Andrews and were handed in to chapel staff last week.

Although visits to the historic chapel have increased in recent years, the books reveal that the chapel appealed to visitors from all over the world in 1904, with entries from South Africa, USA, New Zealand, Canada and across the United Kingdom.
