About The Atholl Centre

The Atholl Centre that you see today, built in the early 1970s in the grounds of the Pitlochry Baptist Church, was the passion of Watson and Kathleen Moyes. Watson was the minister of the Church with the vision of having a centre, with appropriate accommodation, for ‘youth work, training and education and work with disabled people.’
Today the Centre still endeavours to uphold the original aims:

conveniently located on Pitlochry's Main Street
offering accommodation for families (with cots and highchairs available) and groups of up to 33.
catering for special dietary needs, if required

inclusive of all with limited mobility with good disabled access to all downstairs rooms and ensuite bedrooms with wet rooms and a Changing Places Toilet
availability of meeting rooms of various sizes for discussion, interviews, running training courses

available wi-fi, built in AV, media projector, bluetooth technology and deaf loop
an ideal central location for day or residential conferences and retreats
holidays and short breaks for relaxation, exercise and visiting tourist attractions
