Owner description: 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.

We visited the Crannog on the Easter weekend and the Atmosphere was buzzing. Displays from the iron age and Staff dressed up in Iron age clothing was very atmospheric. Displays of Cooking and samples, woodworking and jewellery making were all being demonstrated. The staff were informative and very welcoming too.

Had a fantastic time at the Crannog. Warm welcome and made to feel very welcome by all the staff. The value for money was excellent. The things you can see or even try are amazing. Jewellery making. Wood carving. Blacksmith at work, Spinning, the crannog itself. Gaelic singing and they organise many other things for children and adults to. Well worth the visit. We will be back and possibly more than once.

A very interesting and informative visit to a fascinating place. It's incredible to think how they lived back then, adapting to varying situations, making use of the limited amenities yet trading down the river to the coast. Excellent guide whose talk kept your attention the whole time....5star. Location was also a bonus on the beautiful Loch Tay.
