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.

This is a great visitors center as it has loads of great gifts and knick knacks. Has a nice restaurant and very clean facilities. Caithness Glass is also here and you can stand less than 2 feet away from a master glass blower and watch him create masterpieces.

We have visited this centre on many occasions over the years and have always found something of interest. It had a drover's exhibition on which we found very interesting as it traced the history of Crieff and the drover's from the distant past. We also sampled the restaurant which we found was very good value. The shop had some very... More

Called here mainly to see the glass blowing but it was closed for the week hence disappointed granddaughter but she did enjoy the video and the play areas! Not much else apart from the shops but a nice cafe with good coffee and cakes which were reasonably priced.

Advertised as Caithness Glass with glass blowing demonstrations. EAster week but sadly no Glass blowing for the entire week!!! Shop sells only glass paperweights and antique jewellery. Total waste of time. Do not bother to visit.

Rip-off prices in the '70's motorway style' restaurant (£6 for a panini) Shop for OAP's to buy overly priced stuff. The only saving grace which they should publicise much much more was the Drovers exhibition hidden away at the back or the visitors centre that was really interesting.

This is a good place to meet out of the town for a coffee or lunch. Ample parking with a garden centre and Remake centre close by. Self service, with a good varied menu. Orders of hot food are brought to your table - good sized portions. It's large and airy with plenty of room for wheelchair users. There is... More

Managed to spend more than an hour here after popping in for a quick look with the Caithness Glass exhibition and shop being the highlight , didnt realise you could watch for free as these highly skilled craftsmen shaped the molten glass in front of you. We then went round the shop marvelling at the artistry involved in all the... More

Perhaps we should have investigated more before dropping in here on our way in to Crieff. The name Visitor Centre made us think that we would find tourist information here. This is just a place to eat and shop.Misleading!
