BLAIRGOWRIE ROTARY CLASSIC CAR TOUR TO VISIT ATHOLL PALACE HOTEL
120 classic and modern cars from all over the UK will visit the Atholl Palace Hotel in Pitlochry on Sunday 28 April 2019 as part of a route covering the Angus Glens, Glenshee and Highland Perthshire.
Vehicles created in the 1920s can be seen, along with a selection of today’s modern supercars, many provided exclusively by Bentley Edinburgh who have chosen the event to showcase several recently launched models, including a Bentley Bentayga V8 SUV, and the Bentayga electric hybrid model.
The rally is the premier UK Charity Drive It Day event for 2019, raising money for a host of charities including CHAS and Scotland’s Air Ambulance.
Atholl Palace, with its sweeping driveway and expansive grounds, is a regular stop off point for a variety of different UK and international vintage car rallies in the Spring and Summer months.
General Manager Graeme Strachan said: ”We are delighted to be hosting this wonderful car rally, which is not only a very colourful and glamorous spectacle for all car enthusiasts, but raises such a great amount for charity. We are told last year £28,000 was raised, with a higher total predicted this year.”
“We provide all the drivers with a delicious afternoon tea to welcome them to Pitlochry , before they head home. We are hoping for good weather, and that lots of people will come to see the cars. We will have afternoon teas til 5pm for members of the public, or there is our popular Sunday carvery. Why not make a day of it here at the Atholl Palace, although we recommend that you book.”
