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. Along with all the wonderful whiskey and some chocolate masterclasses one of my all time favourite chefs will be in attendance - Tom Kitchin.
As we' 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' 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' like to see featured please do let us know. I' always happy to research a new coffee shop or fun event!
Best wishes, Bea
"Beautiful place for a quite break. Lots of lovely walks and the best summer weather so far. Loved the kitchen- a great place for the family to congregate. The dog loved the garden. Many thanks" Niall, Lynda & Eilidh, Islay & Southampton
Perfect! Our second stay and it wont be the last. Great base for walks (long walks!), and Pitlochry shops, bars and restaurants. Car didnt move after we arrived. Great weather again and such a relaxing time. Cottage is such a great escape from the norm. Thanks again Kenny for the welcome pack and walk tips. See you again for sure. Kay & Colin, Surrey
A fantastic wee hoose! Everything we could have wanted. A perfect safe space for our wee Pudsey, a dog who likes to explore. The cottage's location is ideal for exploring the area. We shall be back!
