Attractions

The Famous Grouse Experience, located just outside of Crieff, is located in Scotland’s oldest distillery, The Glenturret Distillery.  There you will have the opportunity not only to see how whisky is made, but also to learn more about the Famous Grouse brand

Drummond Castle Gardens, just South of Crieff, has stunning formal gardens with Victorian box hedge parterre. The tranquillity of the gardens makes them a perfect setting to stroll amongst the well-manicured plantings or sit and absorb the atmosphere, or enjoy a picnic amongst the flowers.

 Innerpeffray Library 5 miles SE of Crieff. The oldest existing public library in Scotland, founded by Lord Madderty in 1680. Various books on display, and informative and enthusiastic curators. There is also a small chapel adjacent, worth visiting.

Crieff Visitors Centre hosts a variety of outlets, including a friendly garden centre, a cafe & shop and Crieff Pottery (the crockery in the kitchen is made by Joe of Crieff Pottery). It is also the home of the Caithness Paperweight Factory which has a viewing area

Auchingarrich Wildlife Park, in nearby Comrie, makes a great day out for adults and children.  With many Scottish animals, and a few immigrants too, there is plenty to see at this very child-friendly centre. There are several picnic areas and a coffee shop and gift shop. Baby animals are there to be fed during springtime, and rabbits, guinea pigs and chicks to cuddle throughout the year.

Retail Pleasures

A retail outlet for various glass pieces, from stained glass to fused glass, along with the owners own work area where Jane creates lovely fused glass pieces. She also sells my mosaics (glass ones)

An Cnoc offers a great selection of Scottish Crafts, from hand spun scarves to my mosaics (ceramic ones)
