Visit Crieff

Visit Crieff in its central position right on the edge of the Highlands and nestling in the midst of some of our country's most beautiful scenery.
Within easy striking distance of Scotland's rugged West Coast and the fishing ports on the East, visitors to the town are within twenty miles of real wilderness country, yet just over an hours drive from the bustling, vibrant heart of Glasgow and the sedate elegance of Edinburgh.
By this time you will be in need of a well earned rest at the Drummond Arms where you can partake of a dram or three from this historic hotel's impressive malt whisky collection!
