Description
Blue Flax Tea Room is an extremely well run business that has been run by the current proprietors since early 2014. The property has been placed on the market due to the current proprietor’s impending wish to retire. The property was purchased by the current vendors in 2012. The vendors then undertook a full refurbishment programme of the business premises, including plumbing, heating and wiring. The café was designed by the vendors and fitted out to a very high standard, prior to opening for business in March 2014. Since opening, the café has proved a popular addition to the local area enjoying much repeat custom, particularly due to its excellent location and reputation.

Crieff has developed into a hub for tourism, trading mainly on its whisky and cattle droving history. Tourist attractions include the Caithness Glass Visitor Centre and Glenturret Distillery and Drummond Caslte Gardens.
