Now one of Aberdeen’s best-known hostelries, the Atholl, was originally built as a private residence in 1892. It cost the original owner Mr William ‘Raggie’ Morrison a sum of £1,225 to build at that time.

The property then known as “Hazelhurst” was sold to a Mr. James Davidson in 1900. When an extention was added to the building in 1910, evidence leads us to believe this was for a private chapel, 54 King’s Gate became the majestic building it is today.

In 1946, the building became a private, unlicenced hotel and in 1963, a full license was granted in the name of the Atholl Hotel.
