 Who are we?                                   

Introduction: We are 'Bryce of Crieff', a family run shoe shop, located at 27 High Street, Crieff, Perthshire PH7 3HU, in the heart of Scotland (approx. 18 miles west of Perth, 22 miles north of Stirling and 50 miles from Edinburgh and Glasgow). The photograph does not do justice to the actual size of the shop and the quite literally thousands of pairs of Ladies and Gents footwear that we have in stock, ranging from slippers to sandals and from shoes to boots.

History: The family shoe business started ninety years ago, in 1918, when a young man named Joseph Bryce, excused from active service in World War I, due to only having one leg, moved to Crieff as a cobbler. He lost no time in setting himself up in a small shop in King Street, marrying and starting a family. At the end of World War II, his second son John (known as 'Jack') returned from duty to join the business. Jack's strength was as a salesman and it was he who expanded both the size of the shop and the retail side of the business in King Street, along with his wife and later his two sons. At one point, the family had two shoe shops in Crieff, but later amalgamated the business by moving into larger premises at 27 High Street, just down from the old clock tower. 'Bryce of Crieff' is now run by Leslie and Norman Bryce, grandsons of the founder. The whole shop has been refitted and redecorated in recent years but retains its strong commitment to selling a wide range of quality shoes. The particular emphasis is on finding shoes to fit and be comfortable, which is not always an easy task, as you’ll probably agree!

Website: This website was developed a number of years ago as a means of displaying both current and sale shoes, primarily for visiting shop customers. There are several monitors in the shop for viewing and customers may also pre-view at home. As there can be quite a variation in fit between manufacturers and styles, it is preferable to visit the shop and try the shoes before purchase. Opening hours are Mon-Sat 10am-5pm except for half day Wed 10am-1pm. We would recommend telephoning before arrival in case we have just sold the very pair of shoes that you were after! We can then put the shoes on one side for you. Tel: 01764 652837. We look forward to hearing from you and hopefully meeting you in person.
