Whisky Tours

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.

Testimonials

  • 40th celebration

    'My husband and I came here to celebrate my 40th birthday and we truly had a magnificent time. There was everything that you needed in your accommodation even washing liquid and conditioner for the washing machine. The hot tub and steam room were a real highlight as well as the living log fire.'
  • Outstanding location

    'The location is outstanding - right on the edge of Loch Lomond with private water frontage and beaches. As a location for exploring, again this rates very highly. We easily accessed central Glasgow by train from nearby Balloch and also explored Stirling (particularly the castle and Wallace memorial), the Falkirk Wheel and even Perth and Pitlochry by car. It is a very peaceful place, which can only be disturbed on occasion by your neighbours but with the Slumber Charter in place, we had absolutely no problems overnight.'
