We are a progressive 85% small animal: 15% farm mix, and would require our new colleague to work a 1 in 5 weekend rota. (Small animal vets would have LA backup).

We have lovely clients, a great support team, and plentiful bacon rolls.

Crieff is in beautiful Perthshire; a medium sized market town about 17 miles west of Perth. The town lies on the A85 road between Perth and Crianlarich and on the A822 between Greenloaning and Aberfeldy amongst spectacular scenery. We are just an hours drive from the cities of Edinburgh, Glasgow & Dundee and Stirling is 40 minutes away.
This attractive hillside town can trace its roots back to medieval times, growing with its role as a stop for cattle drovers with their beasts. As a Victorian Spa town Crieff became a popular tourist destination when the Hydro opened it’s doors; extolling the benefits taking the Highland waters. Crieff Hydro still has a spa but perhaps more luxurious than past times! These days The Hyrdo offers swimming pools and a plethora of outdoor activities from zip wires to more sedate pony trekking for locals as well as residents. We also boast the oldest distillery in Scotland for a full choice Scottish ‘waters’ to partake of! Nearby is the pretty village of Muthill and Drummond Castle, with the renowned Italian Gardens which stood in for Versailles in the TV series ‘Outlander’. Picturesque Comrie is seven miles away and beyond lies St Fillans, Lochearnhead and Killin then onwards to the Highlands of Scotland - perfect for the outdoor enthusiast. There’s an Arts Festival, a Comedy Festival and may excellent performances held in local venues.
Crieff boasts many excellent shops, cafes and restaurants within the town. There’s MacRosty Park for fun family outings, the riverside Lady Mary's Walk is just one of many lovely routes for dog walkers & horse riders. Schools in the area include Crieff High and Primary School with its ultra-modern Campus set up, St Dominics Primary, Morrison’s Academy and Ardvreck School. The Campus also provides a library, sports and swimming facilities. For those wishing to make most the beautiful countryside around there’s fishing, boating and canoeing on Loch Earn at St Fillans and hillwalking on the doorstep. Our annual Crieff International Highland Games continue to draw crowds each year and there’s the The Drover’s Tryst celebrating hill walking every Autumn.
