  • "Just back from a lovely stay at Greystones Cottage- perfect location, spotless and the owner has thought of everything you could possibly need!"

    We didn’t use the car for our whole stay as plenty walks from the cottage! Thank you!

  • "Lovely venue and location in the town - we did know the area pretty well."

    Shame about the weather but we could not blame the host for that!

  • "A lovely cottage."

    We stayed for 28 days and had everything we needed. It's well equipped with a kitchen that has plenty of everything. Close to grocery stores (walking distance) so relying on public transport wasn't necessary. Thank you for this wonderful experience.

  • "The stay was good, however my car, which was correctly parked in the street and not blocking any drives, was interfered with on the last two nights of our stay."

    Both door mirrors, which were parked folded in, were pulled open, the rear wiper was pulled from the screen, a tyre dust cap was removed and the tyre partially deflated. I checked the other nearby parked cars but none appeared to be interfered with. It appears that my car was targeted, possibly by someone thinking it shouldn't have been parked there.

  • "Greystones Cottage is very clean, cosy and well-equipped."

    It's well located near shops, Crieff town centre and not far from other towns, walks etc. We arrived in the dark and rain and had some difficulty finding the cottage and it was also tricky to find the back door with the key box. But thankyou, we enjoyed our week and would recommend Greystones Cottage.

  • "Clean, comfortable, well-equipped cottage."

    Quiet location with on-street parking nearby. A good base for exploring Crieff and the surrounding area. Although there was a small issue with the gas central heating during our stay, the owner was very attentive and prompt in their response to get things checked, and the problem was quickly resolved.

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.
