following poem is published by Linda Skill with permission
The proud Atholl Palace Hotel,
Held safe in the heart of Scotland
Near Ben-Y-Vrakies pine clad pile,
Welcomes travellers to rest awhile
As we Woods trippers now know well.
The forest setting of this place,
Set deep in the heart of Scotland,
Fed by pure water, air and light,
And with wild charm and gentle grace
Serves to excite souls with delight.
At this quiet restful venue
From freshest fruit, fowl, fish and meat
Grown deep in the heart of Scotland
Their Chef cooks a varied menu
With each mouthful a tasty treat.
So thank you Robert for your skills
Driving round Lochs and Highland hills
And to the Atholls patient staff,
All helpful, yet good for a laugh
In Pitlochry, heart of Scotland.
