Attraction Information

 The Scottish Crannog Centre is a unique, award-winning living history museum and interesting place to take the family and celebrates its 20th year of being open to the public in 2017.

You will learn all about Crannogs which are a type of ancient loch dwelling found throughout Scotland and Ireland that date from 5,000 years ago! The focal point at the Centre is an amazing reconstruction of an early Iron Age loch dwelling based on excavations from the 2,500 year old site of Oakbank Crannog, one of the 18 lochs preserved in Loch Tay.

The Centre features and exhibition including some of the Iron Age artefacts excavated at Oakbank Crannog such as structural timbers kept in wet tanks. Children can dress-up in Iron Age costume for their tour, be an archaeologist looking unearthed treasure in the sand pit and try the ancient crafts and technologies.

All visits to the Centre include a self-guided walk through of the exhibition, guided-tours in the Crannog Roundhouse and demonstrations of ancient crafts and technologies – following which you are invited to have a go yourself!
