One of the top attractions in Crieff is Glenturret Distillery. Established in 1775, it is the oldest working distillery in Scotland and still uses many traditional techniques today. In fact, it has the only remaining hand-operated mash tun in the country.
With a variety of tours to choose from, you’ll learn all about the whisky making process, while sampling a wee dram or two. The distillery even offers private blending sessions, where you can create your very own whisky to take home as a souvenir.
Gardens and Parks
Drummond Gardens are located within the grounds of Drummond Castle. They are a fine example of formal terraced gardens, remodelled for the Drummond family in the 1830s. They follow the layout of a 17th century Renaissance garden, with formal terraces, ornamental flower beds, symmetrical patterns, statues and fountains. The gardens are open from spring to autumn each year.
Macrosty Park is a beautiful area of parkland in Crieff with a stream called the Turret Burn running through it. It has an impressive collection of mature trees and a lovely Victorian bandstand. Perfect for picnics and walks, and with a large children’s play area.
