Crieff – Gateway to the Highlands
Crieff is the picturesque capital of Upper Strathearn straddling the Highland Boundary Fault where the rolling Lowland landscape meets majestic Highland terrain. From the day the railway came in 1856, people have visited Crieff, eager to escape to the fresh air and scenic surroundings of Strathearn.
Today, visitors come for those same reasons and much more, for Crieff offers a rich abundance of things for you to see and do whatever the weather, your interest or age.
After having explored the vibrant town centre your first stop might be the Crieff Visitor Centre, where you can learn about the cattle drovers who made Crieff such an important trading centre then drop in at the Plant Centre followed by refreshments in the restaurant.
Continue along Muthill Road where you can experience many local craft industries first hand. See the skills involved in glass decoration at Stuart Crystal, paint a pot at the Ceramic Experience or visit Scotland’s only Christmas Village at the Nutcracker Christmas Shop!
The glories of the Crieff countryside are not far from the town centre. Indeed Macrosty Park in Crieff with its Victorian bandstand provides a lovely afternoon setting. Likewise, on a clear day enjoy the panoramic splendour from The Knock, the wooded hill overlooking the town.
