Type: Visitor centers, Traveler Resources
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.

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

We visited with friends for lunch and a look round the shop. The staff were friendly and chatty. There was a good choice on the menu. The soup was homemade and delicious. Everything is freshly prepared and although the restaurant was busy the service was good. If I was to be picky I'd say the restaurant could have been a... More

Cheap and Nasty food, Overpriced. Aiming at bus tours. Very dated interior. Not a nice place to visit.

Hello Ian M, I am sorry you did not enjoy your visit and note from your review history that you also gave 2 other, very acceptable, Crieff businesses 1 star. One reason for our score was that our food is overpriced and yet a Crieff bar received 5 stars and their food is more expensive. All our food is prepared... More

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.
