Atholl Palace Hotel Museum
The Atholl Palace Hotel Museum gives you a glimpse into hotel life some 140 years ago. The hotel was built in 1874 in the Scottish Baronial Victorian style. You will discover the stories of the people who built, worked at, and stayed at the hotel at that time.
The museum explains why a large Hydropathic Establishment was built in Pitlochry. Its impact on the small emerging town of Pitlochry. You will learn about the organisation of a large Hydropathic Establishment. The strict temperance principles and the benefits of healthy clean air of Pitlochry. There is fully equipped 1870s medical room that the resident physician used.
The first hand accounts of life at the Atholl Palace Hotel are fascinating. A glimpse into what life must have been like. You will appreciate just how lucky we are today, with all our mod cons which we take for granted.
The 15 minute film 'The Story of The Atholl Palace' is really well told, with images that help tell the story of the hotel over the last 130 years.
The Atholl Palace Museum is open every day all year, from 10am to 5pm, all year round. Ask at the reception desk for directions.
