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.

On outskirts of town we called in to see it's offerings. A small choice of shops with a restaurant which we availed ourselves of. We enjoyed a decent snack in the cafe/restaurant which was both tasty and decent value. Some areas to peruse but not quite what was expected. If passing then an hour if eating but struggle to justify... More

Just a good place to go. Nice little restaurant and an attached garden centre. Lots of outlet style places for crystal and other purchases, even the (sadly) obligatory Scottish key rings. Well worth popping into, we bought some beautiful crystal wine glasses.

We had many an afternoon in the visitors centre. We have enjoyed the restaurant and feel that it is not to expensive. I would highly recommend the glass centre and the paper wait experience. The man that helps you make the paper wait is fantastic and very friendly. Not to mention the fantastic sales they have in the shop. It's... More

Simply put, Crieff Visitor Centre is brilliant. The restaurant in particular was outstanding, the service so quick with hot food that I didn't even have time to go to the toilet before my meal arrived. I had breaded haddock and chips; I wasn't really expecting much because I don't like my fish covered in bread crumbs (I prefer it battered)... More

Well positioned in the centre of Crieff. The Centre is well-stocked with leaflets, maps, books and souvenirs and the staff are welcoming, well-informed and helpful. The essential stop for newcomers to the area.

We had heard great things about the visitor centre but honestly, we were disappointed. Staff wasn't very friendly and the selection of items weren't unique. You can easily find the same things, with a better variety, else where.

We regularly visit this eatery enroute to further north but the food is becoming bland, overpriced and there is a little indifference from staff. The saving grace is you can get parked outside unlike the many delightful coffee shops in Crieff itself. Overall average in general.

We stopped at the visitor centre for our lunch. Lovely choice of toasties and sandwiches. The kids pizzas were a little bland but the chips nice. Good place to stop with kids. Climbing frame and safe ground to play. Nice shop with affordable gifts.
