There are 2 apartments, one on the ground floor and the other on the Top Floor, each apartment has 2 double bedrooms and 1 bathroom. The views from lovely south facing balconies set these apartments apart from the competition, with stunning views over the town park and Scottish Highlands.

Both are newly renovated and furnished, so they are very well equipped, with high quality finishes including underfloor heating, private entrance, luxury kitchen, 4 poster bed (Ground floor). Wifi. There is private parking and secure entry system, storage shed for bikes/golf clubs as well as nice communal gardens. There is a lift to the Top Floor Apartment.

WHAT TO DO IN THE AREA

Guests always ask what is the area like, so I created my Top 10 things to do in the Crieff area, If you manage to tick off these you will be guaranteed to have a wonderful time and want to come back again. So here we go....

1. Ring of Breadalbane Explorer - this is the bus which does a loop around Perthshire, and you can bring your bikes and pop on and pop off when you like. The bus stop is from the Crieff Hydro Hotel (just 5 min walk from the apartment). I would stop off in Killin and cycle to Lochearnhead (when you get the bus again). Stop off at Kenmore and Aberfeldy both lovely villages

2. Spend the day Perth for a day, 20 min drive from Crieff and go for a walk along the Tay and up to Kinoull Hill

3. Get the train to Edinburgh for the day, in August the Edinburgh festival is on, but any time of the year is a great time to visit

4. Hang out in Crieff for the day, some great walks / cycles around the area (go to the Tourist Office for details, which is in the centre of the town)

5. Go to Delivinos for lunch / evening one day (in the centre of town), and definitely go to Yanns for dinner one evening (on the Perth Road, just 5 mins walk from the apartment), lovely French / Scottish restaurant, you will need to book in advance, as it's very busy

6. Cycle / Walk to Famous Grouse Distillery (about 1 mile away) Scottish oldest distillery, there is a great tour, easy on the whiskey! you'll fall off your bike on the way home. There is a nice walk over the Knock (the hill in Crieff) where the Crieff Hydro is, down the other side to the The Famous Grouse and then you can walk around the river Earn back to Crieff

7. Hang out in MaCrosty Park and Taylor Park, down by the river, lovely parks for a picnic

8. Get the bus to Comrie, cute village next to Crieff (you can cycle there as well, take the back road, its quieter and more scenic. Go for a coffee/lunch in the Royal Hotel in Comrie. Cycle/Drive up to the WW2 Prisoner of War camp, very usually place, but worth a visit.

9. Cycle/ Drive over to Gleneagles Hotel (home of the Ryder Cup in 2014), 5 star world famous hotel, wonderful ESPA spa and restaurants which the public can use. If you want to push the boat out, go to Andrew Fairleys Restaurant (Scotlands only 2 Micheln star restaurant) - you will definitely need to book in advance and bring lots of cash!. Taxi will be about £10 each way, posh clothes required!! great experience.

10. Cycle / Drive to Drummond Gardens just outside Crieff, very impressive gardens, there is a very cool tree-lined long driveway up to the castle.

I hope you like the list and enjoy your time in Crieff. John

Why john burke chose Crieff

We brought this apartment because of the views, you can watch the changing landscape over the year. There is also direct access across the road to the fabulous town park, with the River Earn flowing through it. The apartment is the top floor of 5 floors, so very private and also has private parking and lift access.

What makes this apartment unique

Very cool interiors, under floor heating, oak flooring, high quality beds and bedlinen & towels from the White Company. Free unlimited wifi, easy walking distance into the town and some great local restaurants. Yanns and Delivinos are particularly good.

Stay here while in Crieff, you'll love it.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in the beautiful town of Crieff. It has spectacular views, and is in walking distance to the lovely restaurants and shops. The master bedroom is spacious and the bed and linens wonderful.

As a Canadian we aren't used to the type of furnishings in the living area and found them a bit uncomfortable whilst enjoying our evening drinks. That said, however, they are beautiful and anyway, we were only there in the evenings. Not a big deal.

Three small things encountered were no electric coffee maker/bodum; no toilet paper roller in the bath, and the washer/dryer combo is not a great unit.

Emilia, who greeted us and saw us off at the end of our stay is an owners' Manager dream come true. She is absolutely wonderful and this apartment is immaculate. I wouldn't stay anywhere else if I were to return to this beautiful area.

Thanks for everything.

Kathy and Randy - Calgary, Alberta, Canada
