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.

My wife runs a cafe at a garden in Herefordshire and was appalled at the service level in the cafe here. Long queues for service and when we headed for the drinks section to just get a tea other people in the queue got hot & bothered. Haven't you people learned quing theory? Why do we have to queue for... More

Obviously you visited our restaurant when we were very busy. In general the system we have set up works very well, but unfortunately we have no control over other customers getting annoyed with you when you wanted to jump the queue and push in ahead of them. More

Firstly we are surprised by your extreme rudeness. Our Soup and Sandwich deal is actually £11.00 for two, not £14.00. The soup is homemade on site and we get lots of very positive feedback from our customers about it. We also use granary bread for sandwiches and Lockerbie Scottish Cheddar. It does actually state on the menu that the deal... More

There is a cool exhibition that ties the Scottish cattlemen to the Chisholm trail in the US. Pretty neat stop.

This review is for the shop only. The shop was recommended as being the perfect place to get some gifts to take home, and we were told that it was full of traditional gift-ware to suit all ages and budgets. Based on this, we left most of our gift buying until we came here, which was on our way home.... More

Unfortunately you visited us at a time when we are still waiting on these items. This year we are introducing new lines of goods, including more locally sourced... More

Then theres the restaurant that has a small but varied menu however they sell the traditional Scottish meals such as haggis. They also sell burgers, nachos, and scampi. All meals are well... More
