Since 2007 the home of Caithness Glass has been at Crieff Visitor Centre.
Here visitors can see Caithness Glass being hand crafted by the skilled team of craftsmen in a close-up studio environment. After watching the glassmakers from the factory viewing gallery, you can browse the shop where you will find the full selection of Caithness products plus a great selection of Dartington Crystal, John Beswick and Royal Brierley products.
Admission to the factory viewing gallery is free.
Open all year round.*
