Atholl Palace Hotel


Perth Road, Pitlochry, Perthshire, PH16 5LX

    An historic four star luxury hotel set in Highland Perthshire, Pitlochry, with spa, museum, award winning gardens and break taking mountain and river views.

    For over a century, the Atholl Palace Hotel and estate has welcomed guests and visitors to this unique destination in the heart of Highland Perthshire.  Perched above the town of Pitlochry, within the Valley of the Tummel River, the hotel has extensive views of unrivalled Scottish scenery and landscapes.

    The Atholl Palace Hotel is the epitome of Scottish baronial architectural splendour, designed by the prolific Scottish architect Andrew Heiton Jr. in the Victorian age of grand hotels and impressive Hydropathic establishments.

    The scene is set by our romantic gate lodge on arrival, as guests weave around our woodland and spectacular gardens to our canopied hotel entrance. A genuinely warm Highland welcome awaits visitors.

    Relax in the high ceilinged and spacious lounges in front of a log fire or stove with one of our complimentary newspapers and Wi-Fi internet access.  Be restored within our Lavender Spa. Unwind in our Stag’s Head bar with a mountain view of Ben-y-Vrackie as backdrop. Famed for its stunning views, enjoy the very best of local and Perthshire produce and cuisine in our Verandah Restaurant or be refreshed by Afternoon Tea in the lounge.  

    Be curious in our on-site Atholl Palace Museum about the social history of the hotel. Explore our herb and Japanese gardens. Find peace and solitude in our specimen tree woodland walk or wander into the Black Spout Wood to see the 150ft cascading waterfall.  

    The Atholl Palace Hotel offers plenty of sporting and leisure activity options, including tennis, gym, pitch 'n' putt golf, indoor swimming pool, sauna, children’s playground, billiards/ snooker, games room with pool table, crochet and a variety of woodland walks- all within our grounds and hotel. Our four all-weather hard courts are championship worthy, recently resurfaced in 2015. Keen golfers will also appreciate the nearby Pitlochry Golf Club.

    We invite guests to join us for our special seasonal events and hotel packages throughout the year which include Hogmanay, Robert Burns Night and the Tennis Championship of the Highlands week. Make new friends, with guests who return year on year for our unique celebrations. Children will feel like princes or princesses and we welcome families both large, small and multi-generational.

    Make the Atholl Palace Hotel your first choice wedding, banqueting, conference and training venue. We have hosted events since 1878 in our Bow Lounge and continue to welcome events of all sizes in a wide range of our modern conferencing and banqueting rooms. We offer experience, attention to detail and impeccable service.

    The Atholl Palace provides all the ingredients that make up the dream wedding: the character, the atmosphere, the added individuality and charm, the professionalism of our staff, always on hand to guide you through from the ceremony to the honeymoon. Our romantic grounds and rooms offer abundant opportunities for memorable moments and photographs.
