Overview

There really is something for everyone at Crieff Visitor Centre. A warm welcome, great food, space for the children to play, fantastic gifts, unique fashions and accessories, specialist homeware, viewing area for the Caithness Glass Factory, a Garden Centre packed with great ideas and plants, the Drovers exhibition and the Art Gallery and Antiques area. Located in the beautiful town of Crieff, surrounded by hills and countryside it’s perfect for exploring the area or perhaps enjoying a spot of retail therapy and great coffee with friends.•In the Garden & Plant Centre we have something for every garden and gardener, from shrubs and plants to tools, bird houses and ornaments and much more.•In our Gift shop and showrooms we sell beautiful gifts and souvenirs, fashions, outdoor clothing and accessories including jewellery, shoes and handbags. There’s also music and books as well as speciality whiskies and other Scottish Gifts. •This is home to the famous Caithness Glass where you can buy a range of quality glassware and paperweights and also view the craftsmen and women at work in the factory next door. You can even make your own paperweight!•Next door there is an excellent little Tartan Shop and Art Gallery and Antiques area for those interested in the finer things in life.•A visit to the centre would not be complete without stopping off at our Drover’s Restaurant where we serve fresh local produce cooked on the premises by our skilled chefs. Here you can enjoy the very best in Scottish cuisine from a simple cup of tea with one of our delicious homemade cakes to a full mouth-watering meal.•And finally there is the Drover’s Exhibition which follows the Lives and Times of the Highland Drovers - very relevant locally as the Crieff October Tryst (market) was the centre of the droving trade in the 18th and early 19th centuries.

We brought our son (21) and daughter (16) to Caithness Glass Blowing to make their own paperweights. We weren't sure what to expect, but we were met by smiles and such sincere patience and guidance from Cullen, our glass-blowing master. He showed our son and...More

Thank you for your review “Swizzo”. Thank you also for showing us the finished pieces of art- Calum may be a master but it looks like he has some competition!

The restaurant food is not good. My companion had fish and chips. The chips were OK but the fish was overdone and tasteless. I had veggie burger and chips. The veggie burger was quite strange. Unlike any I've had before. Cutting into it I found...More

We get such great feedback about our glassblowers. They are indeed very talented and skilled people! So glad you enjoyed your glass painting, it's particularly great to have a souvenir you've made yourself!
