In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Crieff like this:

Crieff, market town and par. with ry. sta., S. Perthshire, on r. Earn, 18 m. W. of Perth, 87 NW. of Edinburgh, and 435 NW. of London -- par., 20,385 ac., pop. 4852; town, pop. 4469; P.O., T.O., 6 Banks, 2 newspapers. Market-day, Tuesday; has tanneries, chemical manure works, and manufactories of woollen shirtings, blankets, tweeds, and plaidings. Crieff is much resorted to by invalids on account of its salubrious climate and fine scenery. The hydropathic establishment of Strathearn House is 1 mile NE. of the ry. sta.
