The Scottish town of Crieff is set in the amidst the beautiful Perthshire region, which like most of the country outside of its major cities, is home to a remarkable landscape. In Crieff's case it is a mix of majestic rolling glens, ancient forests, agricultural straths, and the mountains of the southern Highlands. Located in the heart of Perthshire, just west of the city of Perth and north of the city of Stirling, the town of Crieff straddles the Highland Boundary Fault, making it a unique destination, influenced by both Highland and Lowland history and culture. Throughout its past Crieff has been an important economic and cultural centre for a variety of reasons, including being the largest cattle trading centre in all of Scotland from the 16th to 18th century. Today, visitors might make their way to Crieff for a number of other reasons, as the town is home to the iconic Famous Grouse Whisky, which hosts a tour and tasting experience at its Glenturret Distillery, as well as Drummond Gardens, one of the UK’s finest formal gardens, that was featured in the classic film Rob Roy. Visitors to Crieff will quickly find that this attractive country town has a lot to offer, as do its surroundings.
One of the great parts of visiting Crieff is its central location, which allows you to both explore the town and a number of great surrounding sites, including Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park, whose eastern border is less than a 30 minute drive from the town centre. While discovering the eastern region of the park, visitors can enjoy taking in the stunning views of the serene waters of Loch Earn, or those with a more adventurous side can hike to the peak of Ben Vorlich, which stands at 985m and is one of Scotland’s famous Munros.
Just under 10 miles from the town of Crieff visitors will find the Gleneagles Resort, a hotel that not only offers the ultimate luxuries but is also home to a number of world-class golf courses, including the Kings Course, which was the long-time host of the Johnnie Walker Classic on the European Tour, as well as the PGA Centenary Course, which in 2014 played host to the Ryder Cup, a bi-annual team competition between the best players from the USA and Europe.
The two most prominent activities that visitors will enjoy in the town of Crieff would have to be the Famous Grouse Experience and the Drummond Gardens. The Famous Grouse Experience was recently named the Whisky Visitor Attraction of the Year, and those touring the Glenturret Distillery will learn the way whisky has been hand-made here since 1775 (Scotland’s oldest working distillery), and will also get the chance to taste the results. Drummond Gardens is another unique opportunity for visitors, who can stroll the beech-lined avenues of this property, and climb the ridge-top towerhouse to take-in the panoramic view of pristine flowers, trees, hedges and more, including a number of copper beech trees that were planted by Queen Victoria in 1842.
