We work in partnership with other community groups, local and national government and other organisations on a number of projects identified through consulting our community on a continual basis.
Our Vision: A proud, united community working together to achieve its potential.

- to enrich and contribute to the prosperity of people’s lives
- to enhance and develop a network of local organisations

- For the Love of Crieff: We love our town and care about its future. All that we do is driven by our desire to make Crieff an even better place for all.
- Tenacious and Resilient: We will not give up on our goals just because they are sometimes hard to reach. We will keep going and we will make sure that the Trust is robust and able to withstand the hard knocks.

- Transparent: We will be an open, inclusive and transparent organisation and we will be accountable to the people of Crieff for the work that we do.

Latest news from CCT
- CCT AGM Wednesday 15 June at 6pm in Can Do Crieff, Lodge St. All welcome!
- May 2022 – Update on progress with former Drummond Arms Hotel
———————————————————————————Drummond Arms Regeneration Ltd (DARL) – Artists Commission
‘DARL’ is looking for artists or designers to create temporary artwork designs for the four boarded-up windows of the Drummond Arms on Hill Street, Crieff (indicated in red on photos below). The windows will add vibrancy and colour to the town centre as we welcome the public back onto our streets. Artworks should be bold and designed to celebrate Crieff. Any aspect of Crieff’s life can be used – celebrating your community, using the colours, people, landmarks, landscapes, shapes, heritage or feel of the town centre are all possible inspirations. Due to planning restrictions you cannot use any text or numbers. Each of the four chosen artists/designers will be awarded £250 as a design fee for their successful design.
The artwork can be made in any materials but must be on a format (20×36.6 cm or 40×73.2 cm) in size and scannable to at least 600dpi. It would be possible to photograph submissions that are more textured. It is our intention to have the artworks copied, enlarged and printed to the full size of the windows on PVC or backlight-able fabric
This will be a great opportunity to have your work on display for many years to come in a public place.
These windows will be a part of a larger scheme which will transform the facade of the current dilapidated Drummond Arms, while major works continue behind the scenes.
Completed artworks should be delivered to Millar Street Studios, Millar Street, Crieff PH7 3AH between 10am and 1pm Wednesday 21 October or 1pm and 4pm Thursday 22 October 2021.
NB Implementation will be subject to planning consent from Perth & Kinross Council.
