May Blog: HFHP 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. 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

Waterfall house is just that! Waking up to a view of a clear stream and a cascading waterfall in the mornings, was invigorating. The house is comfortable and cosy and positioned in a private peaceful spot. Local amenities are 15 mins away at Killin where you will find a Co-op but not many other shops. Some beautiful views all round for walks and watersports near Alberfeldy if you want to enjoy time in the water. A fabulous active and relaxing holiday!!

Great stay at the Auld Smiddy. Perfect location for some great walking across to Edradour, Black Spout. And we climbed Ben Vrackie and Criagower from the front door. A short walk down the hill to Pitlochry and all that little town has to offer. Cosy comfort inside the cottage. Would definitely return on our next trip to Scotland.
