Birkhall is the private residence of The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall in Scotland.

Birkhall is located on the Balmoral Estate on Royal Deeside and was formerly home to Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother.

Their Royal Highnesses, known as The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay when in Scotland, usually spend their summer holiday at Birkhall.

When at Birkhall, Their Royal Highnesses enjoy fishing and walking in the Scottish countryside and often undertake engagements in the local area.

For example, in September 2006 The Duchess launched the National Osteoporosis Society’s Big Bone Walks during a stay at Birkhall and raised almost £200,000 through sponsorship.
