Susan visited the Midlothian attraction last spring to discover more about its famous carvings and legends.

She also met the late Stuart Mitchell, who composed a piece of music based on the ‘musical cubes’ within the 15th century building.

She described Rosslyn Chapel as a “beautiful and fascinating Chapel; a wonderful place, full of amazing secrets”.

The first episode of Secret Scotland is on Channel 5 at 8pm on Friday.
