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. « less

We visited on our way north and found the restaurant served nice food and was run by friendly staff. Prices were reasonable and we certainly enjoyed our lunch. We also visited the gift shop and bought a few presents which were very reasonably priced. Again the staff were very friendly and took time to ensure our gifts were safely wrapped... More

If this is a tourist's taste of Scotland I am embarrassed. Terrible food and ridiculously expensive served in a tacky cafe. Drive into the town and give your business to someone more deserving like the Lounge or Yan's.

A gorgeous gift shop where you will find a lovely gift for a special birthday or to take home for yourself. The coffee shop is warm and comfortable and reasonably priced for nice food and service.

The full breakfast and filled rolls are also excellent and freshly cooked. The staff are always driendly and if you ask for assistance it... More

Plenty to see here at the visitor centre, where goods are made on site and there is a shop with an excellent selection of gifts. There is a garden centre at the rear with many Xmas gifts, but also a great Café with a really good selection of hot and cold foods. Well worth a visit.
