Discover our beautiful home town

Crieff, Heart of Strathearn

Crieff

Crieff is a small, friendly holiday town in the heart of Perthshire with around 7,000 inhabitants. 
Situated right on the Highland boundary fault it offers stunning views over fertile Strathearn and to the surrounding hills. 

The town has a good range of restaurants, lovely cafes, pubs, banks and many small, independent shops which set Crieff’s High Street apart from many faceless towns. Furthermore there are several art galleries and lovely Craft shops like Tangled up in Blue

Our supermarket, a good-sized Coop, is within easy walking distance from the flat and is open late until 11pm.

You like Food?

Food is definitely a topic in Crieff.
Apart from the comparatively high number of restaurants and cafes, the food shopping is pretty good as well.
We have a good local butcher, a greengrocer, great fish shop and several bakeries. On top of that there are two wine shops and three excellent delis:

Not to forget about Gordon & Durward, the traditional Sweet Shop that has been around since 1925. Most of their sweets are made on the premises.
Between them they should cover most culinary needs.
