Crannog Homepage

Underwater Archaeology

Each year we offer a new events programme designed to stimulate interest from local residents as well as visitors, and to broaden the use of the Crannog, which provides an excellent venue for a wide range of activities under the banner of education and cultural tourism. The events are linked or inspired by ancient traditions, or based on discoveries underwater during crannog investigations in Loch Tay. They include experimental archaeology projects, music, ancient technologies, and traditional crafts.

We may insert other special events and workshops throughout the season, so please revisit this page from time to time.

Wednesday, 12th August: Lughnasa -

Summer Harvest Festival

Celebrate prehistoric farming! Make floral crowns, winnow grain, plough a furrow, and bake harvest rolls. To help you work up an appetite, try woodworking or firemaking the ancient way. You don't need bushcraft! :-)

19th-20th September

Sunday, 11th October: Fruit & Fungi Festival
