The Scottish Crannog Centre is a reconstruction of an early Iron Age loch-dwelling. You will learn all about crannogs, a type of ancient homestead found throughout Scotland and Ireland dating from 2,500 years ago. These structures were built out in the water as defensive homesteads and represented symbols of power and wealth. This authentic re-creation is based on excavation evidence. Your visit includes a self-guided exhibition, a guided crannog tour, and ancient crafts and technology demonstrations. A gift shop offers books, crafts, and other souvenirs. Check ahead for events, which could feature artists, musicians, or skilled craft workers. Please visit website for up-to-date hours and other information.

  • Amazing museum and tour! Our tour guides were all so interesting and entertained our questions so well. This is such a gem! The tour was interactive and interesting, so my kids loved it and were really engaged. (They even let my 7 year old go back and help clean some pottery fragments, which she loved). The setup is very hands-on and I wish we could come for some of the workshops or events. Incredible place!
  • A wonderful and memorable day out for all ages! Staff were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The experience was informative, fun and interactive. This was our second visit and we hope to visit again when they move to the other side of the Loch next year. Would highly recommend visiting. Thanks to everyone there for a great morning!
