Welcome to Beautiful Strathearn!

May Blog: HFHP In Crieff!

Hello Everyone,

I'm sitting writing this at 7pm at night from the garden - I wouldn't say its super warm but its certainly pleasant enough to sit and enjoy the fresh air and light nights. I just love that first burst of summer when we dust off the sandals, pull the deck chair from the back of the shed and weigh up that age old dilemme of cutting the grass or pouring a pimms!

I make that statement like I have plenty of time to do either! It has been a busy old month here at Home From Home Perthshire and I'm pleased to say that its paying dividends for the choices we have on offer for you. I've been working for some time with a number of property owners in the Strathearn area and I am delighted to tell you that that we now have a small collection of self-catering properties to let in Crieff.

Crieff has always been a favourite of mine and to have this excellent excuse to drop into the town and enjoy some of their great coffee shops and galleries is just wonderful! I was particularly pleased to be all signed up and ready to go this month as the Famous Grouse Experience are hosting their Famous Feastival at the end of May. This is a tremendous event and if you get the chance you really must come along. Alongwith all the wonderful whiskey and some chocolate masterclasses one of my all time favourite chefs will be in attendance - Tom Kitchin. Trying hard to remember I am a middle aged woman and not a young chef's groupie! How will I contain my excitement? EEK!! Have a look at their full event listing here.†

As we're busy chatting about feasts I think its only fair to let you in on some of the other great foodie treats in the Crieff area. As well as the aforementioned Famous Grouse, you will find a host of talented, artisan producers. On the second Saturday of the month you'll find them gathered in the local square selling at Crieff Country Market. This is a fabulous day out and if you are visiting is over this weekend do make sure you grab your bag and head for the town. Expect fresh local produce, crafts, baking, jams and preserves, local artisans and lots more.

And of course, you know that Crieff is home to everyone’s childhood favourite – sugar mice! Gordon and Durwards is one of the only shops we know that is guaranteed to raise a smile on even the dourest of faces! This traditional sweetie shop houses jars of sweets, handmade fudges and tablet. To be honest, the famous sugar mice are almost reason enough for a visit to Strathearn!

We will be adding to the Crieff events, restaurants and galleries as we discover them throughout the year - if you have any favourites you'd like to see featured please do let us know. I'm always happy to research a new coffee shop or fun event!

Best wishes, Bea
