The Queen had a strong connection to the countryside and in particular her interest in farming and rural life. She visited Moredun in 1982, on a beautiful sunny day, to open the new Biochemistry laboratories and enjoyed a tour around Moredun Research Institute and farm. Balmoral and Royal Deeside was a very special place for The Queen and her Highland cattle herd and the beautiful Highland pony stud are renowned far and wide.
Our staff and all connected with Moredun, join with people across the nation and the world to recognise the remarkable service and inspiration of Queen Elizabeth II and offer our condolences to our Patron HRH The Princess Royal and the rest of the Royal Family at this very sad time.
