About Aberturret

Aberturret House is a 19th century Dower House built by the Murray family, owners of the nearby Ochtertyre estate. Located on the outskirts of Crieff, Aberturret Cottage is situated within the tranquil grounds Aberturret House.

Today Crieff is a charming mix of old and new, reflecting its changing role throughout the centuries. There is a pleasing selection of welcoming restaurants and public houses, an interesting choice of independent shops specialising in a wide variety of Scottish crafts and produce and everywhere there is an air of unhurried tranquility.

For those with an interest in Scottish history, Crieff has much of interest to offer. It was here in centuries gone by that the annual trysts were held, when the old drove roads leading to Crieff were full of cattle being brought to market.

Having travelled so far the drovers would relax, meeting with old friends, exchanging news and of course enjoying a dram or three, which could often lead to some rowdy behaviour! In fact, one of Rob Roy McGregor's sons found himself being pursued through the streets of Crieff by soldiers!

The inevitable killings were punished on the ‘Kind Gallows', for which Crieff became known throughout Europe. The original hanging tree (used by the early Celtic Earls of Strathearn to administer justice) was said to have been on the north-west of the town but, by the 18th century it had been replaced by a formal wooden structure called 'Gallowhaugh' (now Gallowhill) at the foot of Burrell Street.

Also in Crieff you will find the famous 'Cross of Crieff', a sculptured Celtic stone dating from the 10th century.
