"Atholl Palace is a wonderful place to visit. The staff are very helpful and polite, nothing is a problem! The food is amazing and the rooms are made up daily. This is great for either a weekend break or stay for a week. Great for couples or families. The spa is also brilliant and relaxing. Book now and stay, you won't be disappointed!"
Dutch Speedsters Come To Highland PerthshireTuesday 4th June 2013
Forty five extremely rare and expensive Dutch sports cars called Donkervoorts gathered at the Atholl Palace Hotel on Monday.
The Hotel is well used to hosting vintage car rallies and has three more booked for the rest of the month but this is the first time that Donkervoorts have come to visit with over 80 of their enthusiastic collectors including the Chairman of the Donkervoort Collectors Club, 70 year old Mr Willem, who is still driving his beloved Donkervoort.
Founded by Joop Donkervoort in 1978, Donkervorts are classic racing sports cars. Said Walter Nihot of the Club: We chose the Atholl Palace for its great atmosphere - it has a real wow factor. This is our first time here in Pitlochry and it has been fantastic. Said Dougal Spaven of the Atholl Palace: We always look forward to hosting the vintage car rallies they provide such a talking point as well as colour and spectacle for guests and staff alike! We thought we had seen all types of vintage cars but have never had Donkervoorts come before they are wonderful and we hope to host them again!
