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.

The only good bit about this place is the Caithness glass section where you can watch the artists make the beautiful globes. There is also an antique section which is good for a browse but hard to see some items low down. The gift shop section with the restaurant is sadly very outdated, even though the shop has been rejigged... More

Been here a few times and is okay for passing tourists looking for Scottish gifts, has a centre for glass made products with a small area of antique items in glass cases. The items in the cases are varied but it is a struggle to see the ones on the bottom shelf as it is at ground level. There is... More

Dropped in for a quick look round. The cafe area is pleasant and the home baking is very nice. The centre its self is really a visitors shop, and suffers from the usual rather boring layout displaying local produce. Some very nice examples of local craft and produce but all a little overpriced.

Popped in when passing as I went into Scottish Tartan Authority. The visitor centre is full of the usual tourist gifts etc. The cafe needs a revamp, looked very dated. The glass section was very interesting. Not really worth popping in, and if you do, it'll take 20 mins max. It's clearly catering for coaches stopping in. I wouldnt go... More

The Crieff Visitor Centre was easy to find and had lots of free parking. It has a lovely Caithness Glass shop full of unusual paperweights. The gift shop has lots of contemporary and traditional gifts and cards on sale. We didn't visit the restaurant but it looked clean and well kept.

We found all the amenities on hand at the centre to be of a very high quality. Any staff we came in contact with were helpful, warm and friendly.

Don't live too far away from here. Visited some years ago with a friend and both thought it was awful so never went back. Today I was in Crieff and had some time to waste so thought I'd stop and have a coffee and lunch.....wish I hadn't! Expensive, cheap tasteless food, staff look like they don't want to be there...

There are a couple of shops, garden centre and a restaurant. Watching the paperweights being made is the highlight and well worth going to see.
