The National Trust for Scotland has expressed its deep sadness at the news of the death of Her Majesty The Queen.

Chair of the National Trust for Scotland Sir Mark Jones and Chief Executive Philip Long OBE said: ‘All at our charity are deeply saddened to hear of the death of Her Majesty The Queen.

‘Over the years it was our honour to host Her Majesty The Queen on visits to Trust properties from Falkland Palace in Fife in 1958 to Culloden in 2009.

‘It was our charity’s honour to have several of our woodlands selected to be included in the Queen’s Green Canopy to mark the Platinum Jubilee earlier this year.

‘We would like to pass our sincerest condolences to the Royal Family and our deepest sympathies to our Patron, the former Duke of Rothesay.’

It has been confirmed the State Funeral will take place on Monday 19 September. Our buildings and gardens will be closed all day for Her Majesty The Queen’s funeral. Our countryside places will remain open.
