Highlands and Islands MSP Rhoda Grant said:
“I am saddened about the passing of Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II and offer my deepest condolences to the Royal Family, and those who worked closely with her.
“Her Majesty has been at the forefront of British culture for 70 years.
“She has been steady in the face of political upheaval and represented a comforting consistency for people across the commonwealth during turbulent times.
“She will be sorely missed and leave a lasting legacy of patience, practicality and humour.”
