Visitors continue to flock to Rosslyn Chapel 11 years since the historic building received world-wide fame in Dan Brown’s best seller The Da Vinci Code.
Tourist numbers at the Roslin church show that 2013 was its busiest year since 2007 - the year after the Holywood movie of the book was released.
During the financial year, which ended on March 31, 2014, the chapel welcomed 144,823 visitors, which was an increase of 13 per cent on the previous year.
The year’s total was the highest number since 2007/8, when there were nearly 159,000 visitors.
Ian Gardner, Rosslyn Chapel Trust director, said: “It’s great to see so many people coming to enjoy this wonderful building.”
