About the location

CRIEFF

Gleneagles 10 miles; Perth 18 miles; Stirling 22 miles.

Sitting between Perth and Crianlarich, the popular tourist town of Crieff lies on the geological fault line where the Lowlands meet the Highlands. Originally a hub for cattle drovers between the 16th and 18th centuries, Crieff expanded due to its location and as a meeting place for the cattle business to meet the demands of an increasing Lowlands population. Due to the nature of these meetings or trysts, Crieff developed into a ‘frontier town’ with its reputation for punishment by hanging spreading throughout Europe, and the remains of the gallows can be seen in Perth Museum. Most of Crieff was burned down in 1716 by Highlanders returning demoralised from the Battle of Sheriffmuir and the current town layout was conceived by James Drummond, 3rd Duke of Perth in 1731. Indeed it was Drummond who prevented a further burning since he was a supporter of the Jacobite Rebellion. Bonnie Prince Charlie and his army stayed in the town in 1746 and held meetings in the Drummond Arms Inn in the town centre. Drummond Castle is close to Crieff and its spectacular gardens are open to the public. Today, Crieff is a popular and bustling tourist town with many attractions, including the Caithness Glass Visitor Centre and Glenturret Distillery with its Famous Grouse Experience. The leisure centre provides opportunity for swimming, squash and the gym, or head to Crieff Hydro for more activities or spa facilities. Explore the stunning scenery at Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre, or enjoy a round of golf at Crieff Golf Club or the nine hole course at nearby Comrie. Loch Earn, home to the Lochearnhead Watersports Centre and stunning scenery, is easily reached from Crieff. An inspiring tourist destination set amidst stunning Perthshire scenery.
