Local Attractions

Crieff is the main town in the area of Strathearn, situated midway between Perth and Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park. It is on the southern edge of the Scottish Highlands where rolling lowland landscapes meet majestic highland terrain giving easy access to great hill walking country for all abilities.

Starting from Crieff there are 8 local way-marked routes covering a total distance of 34 miles/55km, taking in the Knock, the wooded hill above Crieff, to riverside walks alongside the River Earn and Turret Burn.  If you are into Munro bagging then Ben Chonzie is situated to the north of Crieff at the head of Glen Turret.  Topping out at 931m/3054 ft, this Munro is ranked 250th out of 283, so a good starting point!

Within Crieff are some lovely local parks including Macrosty Park, which was opened in 1902 and named after the town’s Provost, James Macrosty.  The park is home to some wonderful specimen trees and the Turret Burn flows through it.  Recent works at the park have included improved landscaping, a brand new children’s adventure playground and The Pavilion café to get some well-earned refreshments!

Why not visit the Famous Grouse Experience, (make sure you ask us for your discount voucher), at the old Glen Turret Distillery, with ample car-parking or enjoy this as part of one of the way-marked walking routes. Crieff has it's own Visitor Centre with a garden centre, café, Highland Drovers Exhibition and shop. 

No visit to Perthshire is complete without discovering The Library of Innerpeffray.  Step back in time to Enlightenment Scotland and explore Scotland’s cultural heritage through the books read by local people in this beautiful and tranquil setting, just a short, ten minute drive from Crieff.

Drummond Gardens is one of Scotland‘s most important formal gardens, amongst the finest in Europe.  Open from May to October this splendid example of an Italian Renaissance garden is not to be missed, dogs are welcome as well!  For something a bit wilder then try the Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre with over 70 different species of animals and something to keep all ages amused.

Other regular events that you will need to put in your diary are the Crieff Highland Gathering which takes place during August each year.  Also celebrating Crieff's historic links with the cattle drovers the Crieff and Strathearn Drovers Tryst takes place in October, where you can enjoy guided walks, mountain bike races, exhibitions and many social events.  Make sure you book early for both your accommodation and to enjoy all your favourite walks.

Further afield you have Highland Safaris , who are based in the village of Dull.  Here you can go on a Land Rover Safari, walking, biking, see the Red Deer or go gold panning!  If all that is too much for you then relax and enjoy the breathtaking Highland scenery from the Cafe and shop.

For guided wildlife walks and tours with the chance to see black & red grouse, red deer, roe deer, mountain hare, red squirrel, osprey and even beavers then you need to contact  Perthshire Wildlife , who offer half day or full day tours usually to groups of only 4 people.
