Rejuvenate after the darkness of winter…
Winter can seem to last a long time, with the warmer, drier days of summer long forgotten in the grey, dull wintery weather that seems to last for so long.
And what a perfect way to look beyond the winter blues, that looking at the range of activities for spring breaks in Crieff?
William McGonagall in his poem entitled ‘Crieff’ said of the town
“Ye lovers of the picturesque, if ye wish to drown your grief,
Take my advice, and visit the ancient town of Crieff”
Crieff is a delightful town, boasting a range of activities that any visitor would find attractive. Perfect as a base for Spring breaks across Scotland, Crieff is only 20 minutes from the larger conurbations of Perth and Stirling, with the delights of Edinburgh and Glasgow within an hour.
Once you have worn a path in the surrounding landscape, you can choose from a number of sporting activities from a round or two of golf on the various courses local to the town, or maybe some water sports, such as white water rafting? If fishing is your hobby, there are many opportunities to indulge here.
But, if you plan on taking spring breaks that offer less buzz and more relaxation, Crieff can offer that too. Great restaurants and pubs litter the area, with some great coffee shops by day, and tapas bars by night. The shops offer delightful retail therapy too and, with the wide open spaces of manicured parks contrasting with the surrounding wilderness, there are opportunities to wonder and marvel at nature.
If you are looking for tradition, then Crieff has that too; there is a distillery, with tours and a visitor centre, as well as a variety of art and crafts opportunities, such as buying the local ceramic and pottery.
