Why is Balmoral Castle associated with the British royal family ?


Balmoral Castle in Scotland is one of the Queen's private residences. The castle is located on the large Balmoral Estate, a working estate which aims to protect the environment while contributing to the local economy.

The castle was built around 1584 for Queen Victoria and prince Albert. Balmoral Castle and the original estate were purchased for Queen Victoria by prince Albert in 1852. The original Balmoral Castle was built in the 15th century, but it was considered too small, and so, it was rebuilt . It's architect was William Smith of Aberdeen.


Over the years improvements have been made by successive generations of the royal family. Balmoral Castle is associated with many dramatic events, in British history.
