Roslin (now and then Rosslyn or Roslyn written) is a village with 1642 inhabitants in Midlothian, Scotland. It is about ten kilometers south of Edinburgh. Roslin is known for the Rosslyn Chapel, Roslin Castle and the Battle of Roslin (1303). The Roslin Institute, where the sheep Dolly was cloned, is also there, as well as a park, Roslin Glen. The name Roslin comes from the Celtic ross, a rocky hill, and lynn, a waterfall. The legend says that the village 203 was founded by the Picts Asterius. Since the Rosslyn band was screened in the Hollywood blockbuster The Da Vinci Code, the number of visitors to Roslin has risen sharply.
