Loch Tay Crannog

Crannog is a type of loch-dwelling found throughout Scotland dating from 5,000 years ago, they were built out in the water as defensive homesteads and represented symbols of power and wealth. This Crannog 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 from the 2,600 year old site of Oakbank Crannog, one of the 18 crannogs preserved in Loch Tay.

A visit to the Centre includes a self-guided exhibition, a guided tour, and ancient crafts and technology demonstrations.

In recognition of the dedication to quality, authenticity, and environmental responsibility, the Scottish Crannog Centre's range of awards includes: VS Five Star Visitor Attraction and Most Enjoyable Visitor Attraction in Perthshire.
