Poised on the edge of Scotland's majestic Highlands, Crieff is nestled in amongst some of Scotland�s most beautiful scenery. Whether it's walking, golfing, mountain biking, fishing, kayaking, abseiling or strolling along Crieff�s High Street, Strathearn�s stunning hills and glens are a breathtaking backdrop. The cozy and conveniently situated Upper Crust Apartment provides a home from home for visitors taking advantage of all there is to offer.

Within walking distance from the flat are two of Crieff's lovely parks: Taylor Park with its play ground and pathway perfect for children to cycle alongside the Turret burn, and Macrosty Park with its beautiful views and lovely trees. Overlooking the town is the Knock at the Crieff Hydro with a 360 degree vista of the area.

For golfers, Strathearn has a wide variety of golf courses on its doorstep. From the championship courses at Gleneagles (home of the Ryder Cup in 2014) to the wee Foulford course in the Sma� Glen. Even if you are having a bad round, the beautiful scenery will surely cheer you up! Cyclists can pedal down the beautiful quiet country lanes between Crieff and its neighbouring villages Muthill, Comrie and Auchterarder or take to the hills: the Laggan and Knock are favourites. Fishermen can enjoy a spot of angling at any one of Strathearn's beautiful lochs or rivers. The River Earn runs through Crieff where it meets the River Turret. Salmon, sea trout and grayling fishing are readily available on the river at reasonable cost. Nearby Loch Earn is very popular with boat and bank anglers.

Other treasures unique to Strathearn are: Innerpeffray Library with its literary treasures and intellectual history, whisky tasting at The Famous Grouse at Glenturret Distillery [Scotland's oldest distillery], the parterre gardens at Drummond Castle, pot painting at the Ceramic Experience and Auchingarrich Wildlife Centre. Locals and visitors alike enjoy quality local events including the Crieff Markets held on the second Saturday of each month from April - October; Comrie's Fortnight Festival in July/August, The Crieff Highland Games in August, The Drovers' Tryst walking festival in October and Comrie's awesome Flambeaux procession on Hogmanay.

If all that isn't enough Crieff is also an excellent base for touring around Central Scotland. Glasgow and Edinburgh are only an hour away; Stirling and Perth are just a 25 minute drive on either side of Crieff, and Dunkeld and Aberfeldy are just on the other side of the beautiful Sma� Glen.
