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.

A lovely restaurant for great food and great service would recommend sausage and bacon breakfast bap, and the Drovers burger. Very pleasant staff.

It's a big gift shop but unless you are the market for glass paperweights and stereo typical Scottish gifts there might be better ways of passing the time. It proved handy for some stocking fillers at Christmas for a whisky fan relative but there are better.

We walked from the hotel over the river Earn that had burst its banks so our visit to the visitors center was a welcome diversion to get indoors. Very interesting historical exhibitions and back ground facts on Crieff and its role in Scottish commerce. The crystal glass production was exquisite. Really excellent shopping with authentic Scottish items. Warm and friendly... More

Thank you for your review Dick. It pleases us to read that you found your visit with us worthwhile- and a safe haven from the miserable weather! Our Drovers Exhibition does indeed give a very good account of the bustling market town that Crieff once was, and the arduous journey that many drovers took to reach it. More

We have been going to the centre for a few years now - not for the glass, but for the antiques on sale. This year, we chose a few items and asked what discount was available. The person serving us had a small amount of discretion, but felt that she should be able to get more, so tried to get... More

We decided to call in as we were passing and it was snowing. It is really just shops but we enjoyed the Caithness glass shop. Yu can paint your own glassware but we didn't have time for that this time.
