rieff and its neighbours have had a turbulent history, straddling Highland and Lowland country and cultures. The towns of Strathearn have been shaped by centuries of feuding between clans and rulers. Until the Battle of Flodden early Crieff flourished. After the battle Crieff was perhaps the most notorious town in Scotland. Crime was rife and justice swift and merciless. Crieff was to plunge further into turmoil before rising once again as its recent history shows.
