Scottish Crannog Centre
The Scottish Crannog Centre features a unique reconstruction of an early Iron Age loch-dwelling, built by the Scottish Trust for Underwater Archaeology. This authentic recreation is based on excavation evidence from the 2,500 year old site of ‘Oakbank Crannog’ one of the 18 crannogs preserved in Loch Tay, Scotland. Visit the Centre and be taken back 2500 years in time: your tour starts in the exhibition area from where a costumed guide will take you out onto the Crannog, tell you about the underwater archaeological finds and explain the reconstruction of the Crannog together with the way people lived in these amazing loch dwellings. You will then be brought back on-shore where your guide will demonstrate ancient crafts and technologies including wood-turning and making fire, following which you can have a go yourself! The Centre also has a themed gift shop, toilets and refreshment area, cycle parking outside and car park opposite. Events run regularly throughout the year featuring many specialists who, together with our guides,provide a truly unique visitor experience.
