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.

Called in here when it was raining. Food nice in the restaurant, gift shop has some nice stuff,but overpriced. Antique shop very expensive, but Caithness glass workshop well worth a look and staff friendly.

We were on a family get together and visited on a recent trip. Bit disappointed with selection of shops, found it overpriced. Coffee shop ok, but definitely better shops and service in crieff itself.,

As it was raining we went inside this time. Had passed it many times before. Would not go there again. We were looking for some present to take home. There was a lot of stuff, but nothing quite interesting to buy.

But the problem was we were still waiting on the rest of the order from the kitchen! Which took a very long time. Asked a waitress about... More

A combination of good facilities and café/restaurant makes this a popular spot for bus companies and tourists. Caithness Glass, Garden Centre and craft shop, all had something interesting. Large Car Park. Prices were not cheap.

Stopped in here for a coffee break and the best home made doughnuts tasted for a long time! Nice to have a wee look round the Caithness workshop too.
