The Scottish Crannog Centre is a 5 star, authentic reconstruction of an early Iron Age loch-dwelling which was built by the Scottish Trust for Underwater Archaeology. We also have a Gold award for environmental responsibility.Take a look at some of our underwater discoveries in the exhibition; walk over water into the Iron Age on your unique crannog tour, and get hands-on with ancient crafts and technologies. You can even hire a dugout canoe to paddle into prehistory (weather permitting). Special events run regularly and feature artists, musicians, skilled craft workers and other specialists who, together with our own team of Iron Age guides, actively bring the past to life for adults and children alike from ages 4 +. Also at our Centre, why not browse in our gift shop offering an excellent selection of books, crafts, and related items, or enjoy light refreshments from our snackbar.
