The Scottish Crannog Centre, Loch Tay – Saturday 11th August

Let us take you back 2,500 years to the early Iron Age…… 

Crannogs are a type of ancient loch-dwelling found throughout Scotland and Ireland, built as individual homes to accommodate extended families. Scotland’s award winning crannog reconstruction on Loch Tay was built by The Scottish Trust for Underwater Archaeology to promote the research, recording, preservation and interpretation of Scotland’s underwater heritage.
