Things To Do


The Old Cross Inn is a perfect location for all walkers. With the Cateran Trail on our doorstep we are a perfect base for anyone who wishes to discover the excellent trail. The cateran trail is a gruelling 64 mile route through Perthshire and The Angus Glens. The trail is a circular route divided into five stages and can be comfortably walked in 5 days. The trail has no official beginning or end and can be joined at any stage, one of which is in Blairgowrie heading up towards Bridge of Cally.

For a more relaxed walk, one of the most popular walks is alongside the River Ericht Path to Cargil’s Leap, where you can find out about the history of its namesake, Donald Cargill. You can either come back on yourself into the town centre or carry on and go up Knockie Hill, taking in some of the old mills and spectacular scenery and views of Rattray.


We are spoilt for choice with the great selection of golf courses that are easily accessible from The Old Cross Inn. Within a 10 minute drive you can be at Blairgowrie Golf Club, Strathmore Golf Centre, and Alyth Golf Course. Gleneagles and the Old Course at St Andrews are also within an hours drive.
We also have an 8 passenger seat mini-bus which can assist with the transport to and from the golf courses.  Get in touch to find out more.

Blairgowrie Golf Club has recently hosted the Ladies Open, such as the nature and quality of the facilities.
There are two 18 hole and 1 9 hole championship class courses.


Glenshee Ski Centre is only a 40 minute drive from The Old Cross Inn. With excellent facilities including a cafe and shop the ski centre is a great outdoor activity and a beautiful drive taking in the scenery.


We have some excellent fishing spots in Blairgowrie and the surrounding areas. Freezer facilities are also available at the hotel.
