At check-in, we were offered a wee dram of whiskey. Great start. The Atholl Palace has an awesome vibe. Very nicely appointed interior. Great breakfast in the morning. Beautiful landscaping. Dependable wifi. Not too terribly expensive. Probably one of my new favorite hotels in all of Scotland.

My wife and I stayed at the Atholl Palace Hotel last weekend and looking at reviews on here, had expected a very pleasant weekend in a nice hotel with beautiful surroundings. Whilst the room was pleasant enough (a Valley view), with a lovely classic style layout, our major issues were around the restaurant. After sitting down for dinner we waited...

Set on a hill overlooking the spectacular Perthshire countryside, this hotel & grounds is simply stunning. Loved the creaky floorboards and tartan carpets, the epitome of traditional Scottish luxury and charm..
