BY CAR

There are plenty of parking options for drivers visiting Crieff.

On-street parking: There is on-street parking (15 minutes free, 1 hour stay maximum) in and round the main shopping quarter of East and West High Street, plus the surrounding areas of Church Street, Galvelmore Street, Lodge Street, Comrie Street and Comrie Road. You can park longer in King Street (3 hours). Charges (50p or £1) apply from 8am until 6pm, Monday to Saturday. However, parking is free on Sundays and on December 25 and 26 and January 1 and 2. Charges apply at all other times including bank and local holidays.

Off-street parking: Visitors have the choice of five FREE carparks – Leadenflower Road, Leadenflower Street, The Meadows and Union Terrace (10 hours’ maximum) and King Street (2 hours maximum). Plus there’s a car park in James Square (£1 for a maximum 1 hour stay).

Disabled parking: Free parking spaces exclusively for the use of blue badge holders are provided. Blue badge holders are also permitted to park in any council controlled on or off-street parking bay free of charge. Blue badge holders may also park at other on-street locations subject to the normal conditions of use of their badges. Check out www.pkc.gov.uk/crieffparking for more information.

Overnight parking: If you want to park your car overnight you can pre-pay for parking to cover the following morning. This will to save you having to dash to your car at 8am to purchase a ticket. The valid period on any parking ticket purchased after 6pm starts at 8am the following morning (eg. a 4 hour ticket purchased any time after 6pm would be valid from 8am until 12 noon the following day).

Coach Parking: Free coach parking is also provided at The Meadows (Burrell Street) and Leadenflower Road. A coach drop-off point is provided in James Square (10 minutes maximum stay).

RingGo: You can pay for your parking using RingGo cashless parking in all on-street and council-run car parks. To use RingGo, download the app onto your Smartphone or register online at https://myringgo.co.uk/park. You need to provide details of your car registration number, the make and colour of your car, and securely add your card details. Once you have registered, you can pay for your parking through this app or by calling RingGo on 0203 046 0010. Each parking area has its own special location code.  Your Smartphone should automatically pick up this area code by GPS, but if not, there are signs on all on and off-street parking with the code number on it for you to take a note of. There is a 20p convenience charge on top of your fare and 10p for a reminder text from RingGo 10 minutes before your digital ticket expires. This excess charge goes directly to RingGo and not to Perth & Kinross Council.

BY MOTORBIKE

There are no charges for parking motorcycles in any of the council’s pay and display bays both on-street and off-street controlled by the council. Designated motorcycle bays, can be found within King Street Car Park.

BY MOTORHOME

There is very little in way of available parking for motorhomes and/or campervans. However, Perth and Kinross Council is looking to create designated parking bays, both on and off street. Currently, overnight parking of UNOCCUPIED motorhomes and campervans is permitted in Leadenflower Road car park and The Meadows car park. It is forbidden to sleep, camp or cook within your vehicle while parked here. These car parks do not have any height restriction barriers and are surface level car parks. Please note that the coach, motorhome or campervan should not over hang the designated bays.

BY BUS

Crieff town also has an excellent local bus service (no.45) which was enhanced and improved quite recently. The improvements were made following consultation between Perth and Kinross Council, various Crieff based community groups and consultation with the general public. Bus timetable leaflets are available for the Crieff Town bus service from a number of local outlets in Crieff, including the Council office and Strathearn Community Campus. The leaflet is also available for download here http://bit.ly/2ue7CFz
