The original Queen’s House was opened in 1954 as a residential home for 32 people under the auspices of the British Red Cross Society (Scottish Branch) and run by a voluntary committee.

During the 1990’s, plans were produced for a replacement home designed to meet the highest quality care standards. These plans came to fruition when the new purpose built Queen’s House was opened in 2001 by HRH The Princess Royal.

     Charitable aims and objectives

  1. To provide residential accommodation and nursing care services to elderly people and those with ill-health, including the provision of financial assistance for those who cannot afford to self-fund
  2. To advance and promote:
    • care for the elderly, including medical care, through activities such as conferences and projects, and encouraging the involvement of the local community
    • research in dementia through the development of a specialised dementia care house
