A small yet busy market town in Perth and Kinross, Scotland, Crieff lies between Perth and Crianlarich and has a rich Scottish history. The town has developed over time into a solid hub for tourism, trading mainly on its whisky and cattle droving history. We have a variety of excellent Crieff Hotels from which to explore the area.
Crieff Visitor Centre is a fascinating place to spend a few hours, and is the home of Caithness Glass. Visitors can watch as master craftsmen make the world famous paperweights or try their hand at DIY glass painting and paperweight crafting.
Whisky lovers may enjoy a visit to The Famous Grouse Experience at Scotland's oldest distillery. With distillery tours, a shop, restaurant, bar and tasting room there is plenty to do and learn.

Each year Crieff hosts a Highland Games. It is always a fun experience for all, incorporating music and dancing competitions as well as the famous feats of strength.
The annual week-long October festival, Drovers' Tryst, celebrates the life, work and play of the people who made Crieff the cattle-droving crossroads of Scotland in the 1700s. The tryst offers planned walks, mountain-bike racing and a series of enjoyable evening social events, with music, drama, film and dancing at a family-friendly ceilidh.
