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 visited the Crieff Visitor Centre primarily to go to the Caithness Glass Factory and to have a go at making our very own paperweights, an activity that can be pre-arranged for a fee of £30 per person. It was a great experience and the paperweight that gets delivered several days after the activity is a lovely reminder of our... More

Thank you for your review Roxxane. We are sorry that your visit to us was below par, but unfortunately you visited us on a very difficult day. We had a number of staff members absent through illness and due to unforeseen circumstances we were unable to offer our usually high standard of service and cleanliness. We hope you are able...

Over the road and you will find a restaurant which sells good food and teas etc. We just had a tea or coffee. Its clean... More

This centre is a must, really friendly staff, an abundance of various goods. Caithness Glass is situated here and demonstrations can be seen. Very nice restaurant at very reasonable prices.

Good restaurant with a reasonable selection of food. Good homemade soup. The crystal shop gave an opportunity to watch glass blowing which was fascinating. If you have time you can book to make your own paperweight. There was even glass decorating for children. My wife purchased large crystal wine glasses which had 50% off. A real bargain. These were perfect... More

It has a nice restuarant which does good food with various dishes to suit everybody,it also has a very nice shop with lots of different goods on display and I don't think that you can leave without buying anything because there is a choice of jewellery,leather goods,china and shortbread etc.

We stopped here en route to elsewhere. We arrived at about 1430h to find that there was little food left other than cakes and scones. The soup on offer was carrot and orange. Who thought of that one? I had an apple instead. My wife had coffee and walnut cake. The portion was substantial but never made up for a... More

Bus tourist paradise! Of special note are the every visit sale items of really good quality. They will last you your next 30 years I promise! Lots of ornaments, toys, jewels and biscuity things. But for best quality do the Cathness Crystal. You will find some amazing matches to your wedding gifts of the 70's. and more! Cafeteria rather inferior... More
