The College of Roseisle in the parish of Duffus is a small community located in the north east of Scotland on the Moray coast. Roseisle lies in a triangle between Burghead, Kinloss and Elgin.
Historically it was thought to be the location of a 7th Century Columban monastic college of the order of St Aetlian. Geographically the village is situated at the base of a hill called Tappoch. The name of Duffus is supposed to be derived from the Gaelic word Dubuist, signifying the black lake, in reference to the lake of Spynie, now drained, or to some other lake of which there is no trace left, this water would have surrounded Tappoch and probably Roseisle would have been an island at that time.
Nearby is Burghead which is known to be the site of an ancient Pictish fort and Roseisle has its own historical Pictish artifacts that tie the village to this time in history. The Pictish symbols of a goose and salmon were discovered on a standing stone near Roseisle village.
