Best Hotels in Crieff

Crieff Hotels

Grassy meadows and rugged plains surround the tranquil, historic highland town of Crieff. In recent years this beautiful highland bastion has become increasingly popular with tourists thanks to a few unique attractions. The Famous Grouse Whisky Distillery is located here, and if you enjoy the rich smoked flavours of traditional Scotch whisky, there's nowhere better to be. You can enjoy a peaceful afternoon walk and see the ancient stonework of the historic chapel, or explore Scotland's oldest public lending library.

Things to see

Paying a visit to the Crieff Visitor Centre is a great way to get the ball rolling here, and you'll find there's lots of information about local attractions, events, and places to visit. You can also grab a succulent steak pie, or legendary 'Big Scottish Breakfast' at the restaurant here. Kids'll love the colourful play area, and you can all enjoy watching molten glass being spun into delicate but vivid works of art at the Caithness Glass Factory. Spending some time wandering the town centre is highly recommended, as there's plenty of wonderful local shops and bistros to be discovered. You can pick up some tangy treats from boutique delicatessens, enjoy some fruity wines and delectable cuisine at local restaurants, or just browse the shops. The main attraction in Crieff is the Glenturret Distillery. Scotland's oldest whisky distillery, Glenturret has regular tours, and you can get a free taste too.

Hotels in Crieff

Although small in size, Crieff hotels are much more varied than you might expect. You'll find some high end luxury hotels here, as well as cosy bed and breakfasts, and guesthouses. There's mid-range accommodation too, and most hotels are located fairly centrally, meaning you won't have to go far to find the town centre, or other local attractions. Amenities vary depending on where you stay - you'll be able to soak in the invigorating bubbles of a spa at the higher end establishments, or enjoy an impressive, complimentary Scottish breakfast at many of the warm and friendly guesthouses.

Where to stay

Staying centrally along the A85 (the High Street) means you'll be a few steps away from the serene town centre – perfect if you want to enjoy a relaxed evening meal, indulgent glass of wine, or warming whisky. Walking to other attractions such as the distillery is also easy from here. Alternatively, if you're planning to spend the majority of your time here sampling the rich, deep delights of the local whisky, then finding digs along Burrell Street and the nearby area will be ideal. This looking to splurge, or seeking idyllic romantic surroundings, will want to head to Knock Road.

How to get to Crieff

Crieff is fairly isolated, and although well connected by road has no train station. The best route for international travellers will be to fly into Edinburgh Airport. From here, you can either catch a bus to Perth, where you can find a connecting bus service to Crieff. Or, you can take the train from Edinburgh to Dunblane, and then grab a taxi to Crieff town centre. Hiring a car is an option, but Crieff is quite small and easily traversable on foot, so if you're planning on focusing your visit on the town, it may not be worth the additional expense.
