You could hire a car, but not worth it just for that single journey. Depends what you want to do at Crieff though, whether or not a car will be useful.
Personally aside from the Perth suggestion above I would train it to Dunblane and taxi it to Crieff (17 miles). If you are really keen you can get to (with a change at Dunblane) Gleneagles and a taxi from there (11 miles) would be cheaper.
Of course if you will use a car whilst in Crieff it makes sense to hire one
Thank you both for replies.
I will check out the bus and train suggestions!
I will not need car in Crieff but would hire one if the bus/train route was not straightforward as do not relish the thought of hanging around waiting for buses/trains when time is limited!
One more question: would you have a rough idea of cost of taxi from Dunblane or Gleneagles?
Thanks again for help :)
Trains to Gleneagles are not frequent, and I would suggest changing at Stirling rather than Dunblane as Stirling is a staffed station.
I would definitely get the train to Dunblane and then the bus to Crieff. The buses are not that frequent so I would do a bit of research as to train and bus connections...the no 47 is one of the buses that do the route. The bus also stops at the bus station.
You could also do it at Stirling but you end up using the same bus to Crieff...
Thanks for replies...lots of food for thought and options!
Thanks again :)
Just noticed I typed Bus also stops at the 'bus' station...that should be 'train' station...doh!
Did a wee search on Traveline
The very cheapest way would be to get a bus to Stirling/ Bridge of Allan but the suggestions on the search are reasonable enough.
The railway to Crieff closed in the 1960s, so you'll have to use a bus. I agree with reply 9 above - check the travelinescotland website.
