A Palace with its own Manor House!

The Atholl Palace Hotel in Pitlochry has added a former Victorian Mansion House to its wide ranging portfolio of holiday accommodation.

The property, originally built in 1871 for the owners of the Atholl Palace, then the Athole Hydropathic, a traditional Victorian Health establishment, is set in the Hotel grounds, just south west of the main hotel at Corriebruach. The ten room Mansion House, which Atholl Palace is marketing as the Manor House, has been considerably upgraded to offer an extremely high standard of accommodation. The property has a spacious entry hallway; impressive sweeping staircase and very comfortable bedrooms. One of the ground floor bedrooms can be easily adapted into a sitting room if required. As you would expect from a Manor House, decoration and furnishing is sumptuous with rich walnut furniture; glass chandeliers and beautiful bed linen.

“We are delighted to add this beautiful and historic property to our portfolio” said General Manager Dougal Spaven. “It sits in a particularly beautiful and secluded spot which benefits from a great deal of natural light. Guests can enjoy real peace and quiet but they are still within easy walking distance of the main hotel with all its amenities. The Manor House has its own access and parking too to add to the convenience.” “We are confident it will be a very popular addition. Up to twenty people can stay here in a group, so it is ideal for guests using the hotel for a small conference or meeting or guests staying for a wedding or other family occasion. The rooms can also be let out separately,” he added. “The glorious estate we have here at Atholl Palace together with many of the original Victorian Buildings which we have redeveloped into high class holiday accommodation gives us strong appeal such as the beautiful Gate Lodge, popular with honeymooners. But we have not been afraid to mix in some contemporary style too in our self catering Lodges. We truly have something for everyone.”

9th to 15th September 2012 Since 1896, the second oldest tournament in Scotland has taken place in the grounds of the Atholl Palace Hotel in Pitlochry - the heart of the Highlands. The four all weather courts nestle sheltered among the trees, (normally drenched by sunlight!) overlooked by the castle-like towers of the hotel. There are few finer venues anywhere for a tournament such as this. Many famous names have been associated with it over the years and none ever forgets the unique atmosphere generated by this friendliest of tournaments. Whilst the competitive edge is always there, the spirit of the event is often more important!

Innes' Garden Diary
picture of Innes' Garden Diary

Some things in life are named in a manner that simply doesn’t do them justice. In the garden this might be a sweetly perfumed rose whose name doesn’t even hint at the loveliness of it or a stunning lily or gladiola....there are many examples. What I have in mind, however, is the humble tattie. A keen vegetable grower friend once said to me that the “Golden Wonder” was too wonderful to be called “just a potato”. Oh really?

Can anything lift the spirit more, towards the end of winter, than hearing the first birdsong of the New Year? I got out of the car and walked towards the hotel one morning recently and was stopped in my tracks....

I'VE swum under the stars in the tropics and splashed around in the Mediterranean, but I never thought I'd swim outdoors in Scotland. But then I’d never seen an outdoor pool in the highlands that looked quite as inviting as the one at the beautiful the Atholl Palace Hotel in Pitlochry, Perthshire. All Scottish baronial elegance, manicured lawns, turrets and balustrades, the spacious four star hotel has retained many of its original and impressive Victorian and Art Deco features – including that impressive outdoor pool.

From The Himalayas To Highland Perthshire – A Well Deserved Celebration For Intrepid Trekkers

The Atholl Palace Hotel hosted a very special group of mountaineers at the weekend when ten visually impaired people, and their guides, from S Team Challenge came to enjoy a reunion celebratory Dinner and a free night’s bed and breakfast courtesy of the hotel management. Registered Charity S Team Challenge helps disadvantaged teenagers and adults experiencing a range of disabilities within the community and offers outdoor experiences such as camping, hill walking, guided mountaineering and climbing. Organised and supervised by mountaineering experts Trekking Encounters, S Team Challenge ‘s biggest adventure this year has been the trek in the Himalayas last month with the visually impaired group and their Guides. Said Group leader and Trekking Encounters Director Fraser Williams: “Saturday’s Dinner provided a chance to get together again socially and give everyone a big pat on the back. This group of visually impaired people, or VIP’s as they were called, did amazingly well in this challenge.”
