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 really good place to go on a rainy day. Very interesting place with a good cafe. There were gifts in all price ranges and also a variety if things for children. There were also lists of holiday gifts for taking home. Also great selection of crystal suitable for wedding gifts.

The Visitor Centre has all you would want or expect. So many diufferent items that will keep you busy for an hour or two. When in Crieff, this is a must visit.

Situated just out the city center, the visitor center is a excellent place to visit especially for people like me on his first visit to Crieff where you can observe the art of glass making.

This is the 3rd time that we have been here. Kids love the glass factory watching the guys make the different paper weights etc. They also love to have a go at painting a picture on a glass, this costs around £5 and you get to take it home. Lots of lovely glass to purchase in the shop & also... More

Really good reasonably priced shops. Very good cafe. activities to keep little kids occupied. And the Christmas Shop over the Road and the Stuart Crystal shop altogether make this a must. The Christmas shop closer to Xmas will be fantastic.

The usual tourist shops with a large selection of crystal, china and pottery. One unusual shop is the Christmas one which is open all year. There is also a cafe which we did not try. There are shops on either side of the road which can be quite busy at times.

My wife loves the crystal shop so that takes care of the first hour. They have some lovely things but taking them back to South Africa is a bit risky. The Christmas shop is also really nice with a cheerful Christmas atmosphere. Lots of ideas for decoration and things for every budget. That was another hour. There is a nice... More
