Located in the foothills of Glenshee, the gateway to the Scottish Highlands, Bridge of Cally is a charming village, surrounded by countryside that cries out to be explored.
Perhaps the Bridge of Cally's namesake hotel's biggest draw is its location on the Cateran Walking Trail: one of Scotland’s most rewarding long distance walking circuits. Weary travellers are encouraged to pull up a pew inside the Bridge of Cally Hotel's bar and enjoy their second biggest draw: a warming meal, accompanied of course by something from a second to none selection of Scottish whiskies.
Offerings from the land include pan fried chicken supreme served with smoked bacon and chorizo jam and roasted cherry tomatoes, lamb shank served with curly kale and red wine jus, or the 10oz prime ribeye, served with steak cut chips and your choice of whisky cream, pepper and brandy, or Béarnaise sauce. There’s plenty from the sea to satiate seafood lovers, such as grilled seabass fillet served in a prawn mariner sauce, and the traditional pub favourite scampi and chips.
Ravenous tastecard members can opt for one of the bar’s gourmet burgers, before sealing it in with something from the delectable desserts menu: choose from the chef’s daily special crème brulee, luxury ice cream, or sticky toffee pudding.
The dedicated staff at the Bridge of Cally hotel serve a locally sourced menu of modern Scottish pub favourites. The quaint country inn packs heaps of character, with welcoming staff, a traditional log fire, and an outside seating area perfect for warm summer days.
Not so keen on hiking? Just a 50 minute drive from both Perth and Dundee, the Bridge of Cally Hotel is still an ideal escape for anyone craving good food and drink and some respite, at a great value. With cosy, traditional features and a second-to-none menu of modern Scottish and British food served in the bar area, you can sit back and allow hours to pass by.
