Atholl Palace Hotel

A924, Pitlochry, Perth and Kinross, PH16 5LY, Scotland

A grand hotel in the best Victorian style, the Atholl Palace is a 19th-century vision of a medieval castle on 50 acres with views of hills and valleys. It was built in the 1870s, when the popularity of spas and water treatments was at its height. Its fourth-floor suites, in the pointed towers, have circular sitting rooms with lovely views (though it is quite a climb to reach them). The bedrooms are bright and luxurious; most have grand curtained beds and reproduction antique furniture. Bathrooms are spacious and unique. In the basement, a genuinely interesting museum (£3) looks at the hotel's history. The elegant restaurant offers prix-fixe and à la carte menus. There are gardens and woods to walk in, and a range of activities for guests who prefer not to lounge in the ample leather sofas in the lobby.
