On a further note, Brian Allan wrote a book about Roslyn Chapel. Which I have not read but does go into the Templar links to the OTO and Crowley.

They tended to be academics, historians and members of various quasi-religious and mystical groups, e.g. the Freemasons, the Rosicrucians and the Militi Templi Scotia (MTS), who are a relatively modern, (18th century) Scottish variant on the legendary and near mythical order of warrior monks, the Knights Templar. Ownership of the Templar inheritance has been claimed by a variety of groups and organisations and there are a series of Masonic degrees, beginning with the Royal Arch and continuing through The Preceptory and Cryptic Council, all rituals invoking Templar imagery and traditions. In addition there have been other less worthy groups who claimed to invoke the Templar name and its code of honour, among them the OTO, or 'Ordo Templi Orientis', and the more recent but much more venal and avaricious, 'Order of the Solar Temple'.

Both of these groups were more concerned with enacting rituals and quasi-magical ceremonies than promoting chivalric values, particularly the OTO, which included the notorious, late 19th, early 20th century occultist, Aleister Crowley, among its members. In the case of the Solar Temple, which in fact was organised and operated more like a cult, the lives of several of its adherents ended in mass suicide at the whim of it founder rather than initiation into anything genuinely worthwhile.
