The Atholl Restaurant:

The Atholl started life as a private dining room for guests staying at the hotel. Its elegant, flower-filled Georgian setting, intimate atmosphere, fine wine list and expertly prepared modern Scottish menu drew an enthusiastic and knowledgeable local clientele as well, so the Atholl has gradually evolved into a much sought-after restaurant in Edinburgh. The Atholl only seats 14 people at a time, so be sure to reserve in advance.

Afternoon Tea:

Invented by the seventh Duchess of Bedford to curb her hunger pangs between breakfast and dinner back in the 1800’s, afternoon tea has become quite the thing to do when enjoying a leisurely hour or two with your friends and loved ones. Enjoy the famous Howard afternoon tea served by their friendly team of butlers in the elegant dining rooms from 2:00pm to 5:00pm daily.

The City of Edinburgh

On The Map: Edinburgh is located in the southeast of Scotland. Edinburgh is well served by a good network of roads and motorways, including the M8 from Glasgow to the west, and A68 from Newcastle, England to the southeast.

Edinburgh knows how to welcome travelers with grace and charm. She also knows how to kick up her heels and enjoy a nice shot of Scotch Whisky after a festival. The hill that Edinburgh Castle stands upon has been Scotland’s remarkable silent witness since the Bronze Age. Today her streets are filled with cutting-edge galleries and museums, tributes to the love of literature and music, fine cuisine, quirky shops, theater, and an extravagance of festivals. Four ancient streets, called the Royal Mile, are the main thoroughfare.  Running through medieval Edinburgh with her 66 alleys, tumbling shops, cobblestones, and tight homes the Royal Mile takes you to New Town.  Here you’ll stroll through fine gardens, perfect Georgian architecture and broad squares. The mix of time, while lost in time, is a heady brew. There may be no finer city than Edinburgh Scotland, to participate in the gifts of the past with an eye to a brilliant future.
