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.

Visited this collection of units as part of an organised tour offered by a coach company and came away very disappointed as to what was offered for sale and the exorbitant prices charged for them. The café prices were equally extortionate - 70 pence for one item of fruit (banana). As the nearby crystal outlet and glass blowing demonstrations failed... More

Stopped off here for lunch, four adults and a baby. A very clean and spacious cafe with plenty of room for a buggy. Friendly staff who didn't hurry us to decide on our order. Food was freshly cooked, tasty and reasonably priced. After lunch we looked around the garden centre which was such a different atmosphere from the chain centres.... More

It's a good place to stop for a nice hearty meal. Also take the time to visit the guys making the paperweights.

OK so the cafe is nice with reasonable food but certainly not inexpensive. Factory shop a waste of time (I suppose someone must buy this stuff otherwise they'd be out of business) I note that other visitors have commented that they too are misled by the name - reading the reviews below it is too late to correct people who...

Restaurant was self service but very good choice. Disappointed that the pudding I would have liked was finished and it was only 12.20pm - we were a party of over 40 people and had pre-booked. Super selection of Scottish goods - many things I had never seen before. Also a Caithness Glass shop on the site.

Visited here with our young son as it was advertised as having a good cafe with a 'healthy' kids menu. The food was overpriced and poor quality. Not impressed at all. The kid's menu was the usual nuggets, chips and beans - not what I'd call healthy.

Great homemade soup and ideally priced. Family friendly and a nice small play area at the rear of the property. Also, has usual Scottish bits and pieces for sale, in particular, glass artefacts.

This is a lovely place to stop, it is very expensive for some of the items, the gifts are great, and the coffee shop is a bit pricey too. Personally I like this place, their is a small play area for the younger age of kids.
