About Atholl Estates
Atholl Estates is one of Scotland’s best-known Highland estates. Its history dates back to the 13th century, but throughout the ages it has adapted to the times, and today it manages a range of operations in the tourism, events, forestry, farming, property and country sport sectors.
We run a diverse range of enterprises within the two main operating groups of tourism and property management.
Our tourism services are presented in detail elsewhere on this site but here we would like to explain what we do on the estate to manage the land and buildings to provide the best balance between commercial opportunity, environmental stewardship and social responsibility.
Although the estate is managed commercially, our central aims are the preservation and enhancement of its natural, built and social environment for the benefit of Scotland as a whole.
Located in Highland Perthshire with offices in Blair Atholl, the estate is centred around the famous landmark of Blair Castle. Steeped in history, the castle and grounds are open to the public for day visitors, corporate events, functions and weddings.
Equal in splendour to the castle is the magnificent landscape of the 145,000-acre estate in which it is set, which offers beautifully scenic vistas of rolling farmland and wild open hills.
The wildlife and atmosphere of this typically Scottish wilderness can be enjoyed in many different ways, and we offer a range of activities and facilities to suit most tastes and abilities.
