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.

Could not have been happier'We could not have been happier with our choice of Loch Lomond Waterfront as our wedding venue! The amazing, stunning and extremely scenic location is really just the start of a long list of great things about this venue. We loved having site exclusivity for the whole weekend, it really made the atmosphere fun and got everyone socialising well. The wedding coordinator/manager, Sheena, is AMAZING and a total credit to the venue!! She is a dynamo that makes everything seem easy. We also loved how much flexibility and choice we had with pretty much everything about our wedding, and how...
Outstanding service and friendly staff“We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect location. The service was oustanding and the staff were so friendly they felt like part of the wedding."

My stay will never be forgotten'Just wanted to say a very big thank you for my wonderful stay, I have no words to describe the incredible comfort I had at the Cawdor Diamond Lodge, I just checked out today this morning from lodge 5, I do not agree that your lodge is a five star if I could I would call it a 100 star lodge. From start to finish, my stay at the lodge will never be forgotten it's special and unique and an amazing experience'
