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.

Stopped here on our way to Oban; lovely smiling Santa at entrance to restaurant with another very nice Christmas display in the centre of the self service restaurant. We ordered a crispy bacon roll; bit of a wait but you know it is being cooked to order, it has to rate as one of the tastiest bacon rolls with 3... More

The Glass Centre is a must...paperweights and how they are made (watch the guys making these fascinating objects). Some are very reasonably priced too. Some are simply amazing!

We stopped of here for a lunch break. We were impressed with the choice of menu and the array of gifts you can buy in the shops. Our lunches were lovely and the crystal and glass blowing was great to see.

Friendly staff, and nice tartan seating. We both took baked potato. 4 out of 10 overall. Dry...... the Haggis with it was also disappointing. Best is the location beside the excellent Caithness glass factory. Their paperweights are superb.

As somebody who lives local to this centre I always enjoy a trip to the visitors centre. The souvenirs are of great quality and prices, The crystal experience and have a go at making your own paperweight is ideal for adults to try whilst the younger ones can paint their own glasses. The restaurant serves good quality food which is... More

Visited here as a couple, it was a very cold afternoon and we were glad to get in somewhere with heat. A large shop and crystal center with an equally large restaurant, which was quiet when we visited. I am sure this would be very busy on a summers day. A good choice of the usual Scottish souvenirs and some... More

I imagine this could be very busy during the summer months, but is was very quiet the day we were there - the resturant was very clean but a little on the cold side, i kept my coat on, as did a number of other diners.
