"The Atholl Palace is one of my favourite places where each year we meet up with good friends and have fun. It's the perfect place to stay in a perfect setting with lovely people looking after us. What more could a person want?"
A Very Special
The imposing Highland setting, the blazing log fires, the delightfully relaxing surroundings, the many years of experience on hand, the many optional activities, and of course that special atmosphere for the big night – how can you resist the thought of Hogmanay at the Atholl Palace!
Just a few things change each year, but our guests keep telling us not to change anything - so we don’t! Some of the many elements that fill up each day are listed below!
This year on 30th December we visit Blair Castle, home of the Dukes of Atholl and 700 years of Scottish History. On Hogmanay we return to Perth Theatre for the traditional festive panto ‘Cinderella’.
