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.
