Roslin, a village in central Scotland known for a surprising number of things. The Rosslyn Chapel and a picturesque glen below it with the remains of a 1804 gunpowder mills, the Roslin Castle, the Roslin Institute, home of Dolly the Sheep, and the monument commemorating the 1303 Battle of Roslin, one of the most important events during the First War of Scottish Independence, to name a few. Roslin is also a birthplace of a butcher John Lawson,the inventor of Bovril, and a plaque mentioning Sir Walter Scott inspired to write few poems on his weekend stroll can be found in a nearby woodland.
Plenty of pub trivia material coming from such a modest community.
The very first school in the village was built in 1829 and as the population grew from 252 to over 1600 mainly thanks to the booming coal mining industry, it had been replaced in 1973 by a new school building to accommodate 10 classes in three large open plan areas.
Due to ageing facilities and increasing number of pupils the old school has yet again been replaced by a larger, more modern building in 2017.
