Rosslyn Chapel was built in 1446, so the story could start long before Isaac Newton! I'm wondering if it's been home to many groups over the centuries.
But I'm open to all theories!!

I'm reminded of the fact that the limestone tunnels and caverns within the Rock of Gibraltar were excavated easily by the British military, using ordinary spades, pickaxes etc because the interior of the rock was soft and only became hard when exposed to air. Similarly, some sandstones can be quite loosely agglomerated and can be carved with pen knives. Rock houses at Kinver and Bridgnorth in England were excavated and inhabited for years by people who had nothing but ordinary tools. Whilst I do not know the geology of the Gilmerton Cove area, if sandstone or limestone are present then the excavations are well wiihin ordinary capabilities.

Fantastic stuff... The city of Nottingham is riddled with these sort of cave like structures and a team of surveyors have actually started documenting them with a virtual mapping system.

Wow zeevar, that is really exciting! Have there been any conclusions about their function or their age?

An update on the tunnels was on the news today; it is now thought that they stretch to almost double the size as originally supposed. More chambers, as yet unexplored, have also been discovered.






Now scientists from the universities of St Andrews and Edinburgh are using ground-penetrating radar equipment to map out what else may lie beneath. The waves bounce off cavities or tunnels carved into the rock below.

The team has discovered that the subterranean network is at least double the size originally thought. Simon Shackley, from Edinburgh University's School of Geosciences, said: "On the other side of Gilmerton Road there is a rather large chamber that is probably about 4m [13ft] deep."

"There also appear to be cavities in front of the cove and behind it - both about 2m deep".


BBC Scotland




Dr Richard Bates, of St Andrews University, told BBC Scotland the tunnels were "strange places" with very little detail about who used them or why they were built in the first place.

"Perhaps by the work we're doing - if we're getting a bigger picture we're mapping in a more extensive way the footprint of it - then what we're hoping is that will tell us something about the use," he said.

"If it's got lots more passageways or maybe it's only got these two single passageways, but they might be leading somewhere else. And where they're leading to could potentially tell us what these were used for."





This is a really exciting development and hopefully we will hear more soon. Personally, I'm hoping that the tunnels lead to Rosslyn Chapel and that they have many more secrets to deliver.

Oh great this will surely give more bs to be exploited by the curse of oak island show, lol

I can see it now:
What if the tunnels contain a rock in a weird shape ? And the masonic connections?

could these caverns contain the secret to oak island?

Could the tunnels connect to oak island?

Or even worse they will come up with the curse of the Edinburgh tunnel?


Jk aside cant wait till the get more info on this.

This is the one currently posted on the site linked in the OP.

It is fairly similar and gives a good view of the rooms.
