Crieff, Scotland, is located in the central region of the country, in the county of Perth and Kinross, on the A85 road. It has traditionally been an important market town due to its central location on the way between Parth and the Highlands. However, today it is mostly a center of tourism with many indoors attractions as well as sports activities offered in its close vicinity. Although there are buses going through the town connecting it with the biggest cities nearby, to be able to make the most of your stay, you will definitely need your own vehicle.
When visiting this part of Scotland, you should definitely not miss out on visiting a traditional whiskey distillery. The Famous Grouse Experience offers an entertaining, but at the same time educational tour through the oldest whiskey distillery of Scotland and the possibility to try out the drink that put Scotland on the culinary map.
After pleasing your taste buds at the Famous Grouse factory, why not have a more intellectual adventure at the Library of Innerpeffray, the oldest lending library of Scotland? Here, volunteers will guide you through the historic building and let you browse through some antique books. Last, but not least, on a sunny day, the Drummond Castle Gardens is the perfect place for a lovely walk around this beautiful, stately home.
For the fans of outdoor adventures, this place has a lot to offer as well. Four-wheel and off-road tours, water sports adventures, and bike tours are just some of the activities on offer. Moreover, a very popular activity is discovering the area on horseback as well as playing on one of the lush, green golf courses nearby.
And the good news is you don't necessarily have to blow your budget to be able to enjoy everything Crieff has to offer as are definitely options for Crieff, Scotland hostels available right outside of town. With a cosy living room and spacious dorms, your Crieff, Scotland hostel is located in a rural setting and will give you a glimpse into farm life of the Scottish countryside.
