Owner description: 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.

There are some nice items for sale here, not the standard items. The visitor centre is a nice place to browse and buy.

Really needs money spent to make this a little more current. Just as well we'd parked the Delorean outside, needed to get back to civilisation.

Can I start by sayin myself and 4 friends had a lovely breakfast in visitor centre. Staff were brilliant. We bought a few gifts from shop there before crossing over the the Nutcracker Christmas shop. nutcracker Christmas shop was disappointing. Staff were there with their faces tripping them. Lacked the feel of Christmas. Yes it had lots of Christmas decorations... More

Thank you for your review Mrs Irvine. We are glad that you enjoyed your meal. We are not affiliated with the Nutcracker Christmas shop but we do have our very own Christmas Grotto in our Garden Centre. Hopefully you’ll get the chance to come back and see it this year. More

Good parking and easy to find. Nice selection of shops, including Caithness Glass with demonstrations of glass blowing next door, a small antiques shop and an art gallery with a limited selection of prints, sculptures and ceramics. The Drovers restaurant is spacious and clean. On a previous visit tried the Drover burger which was delicious, accompanied by the best chips... More

We have visited here before. The decor in the restaurant has not changed in 20 years. The food was satisfactory but the cutlery was filthy! My partner hated the silly little packets of condiments. The Drover's Exhibition is interesting. There is lots to read and an informative 15 minute video. We enjoyed browsing in the antique shop and garden centre.... More

Thank you for your review Scottishfisherlass. Our previous renovation to the restaurant was completed approximately 3 years ago- perhaps you are thinking of somewhere else? Although our Drovers Exhibition is a little small, it still holds a lot of interesting information- we are glad you think so too. Our staff are always happy to help. More

dropped on for lunch today, it was delicious. Super home baking, good choice and substantial helpings. The shop was nice enough but not as I remember it from a few years back when the shop stock was very different.

Spent two hours here, plenty to see, from the garden centre to the nutcracker (all year round) christmas shop. The Glass blowing display area is well worth a visit, watching craftsmen blow lumps of molten glass into various glass objects and paperwieghts.
