Getting to Crieff from Dundee required a 20 minute train ride to Perth (£7.50 return per person) and a further 45 minute bus ride (£4.10 return per person). The distillery is a bit out of town on the main road but the walk is pleasant. We left Dundee around 10am and arrived at the Glenturret Distillery around 12:30pm. Upon arrival, we paid for the 1:30pm Experience tour (£8.95 per person) and then headed up to the restaurant to kill an hour. The restaurant was disappointing, though we did enjoy a drink before moving on. The shop was better and we walked away with a chunk of whisky fudge (£1.60) as our souvenir.

Crieff itself was a surprise; we hadn't expected such a large town. When we arrived in the early afternoon it was bustling with activity and we should've stopped then for a pint rather than heading straight for the distillery. Upon our return, around 5:30pm, the town had already seemingly closed for the night so we didn't really get to experience much of Crieff. We did find a couple pubs still open however, though the one we chose we weren't terribly impressed with. There were a few takeaways to choose from too, but again, the one we chose we were disappointed with. With nothing left to entertain us, we jumped on the 7pm bus back to Perth and were home before 9:30pm.
