Let us introduce you to the pride and passion behind a living experiment, now a 5 star visitor and educational centre with a Gold award for best practice in environmental management. To view our Green Code and environmental policy, please click here.

Take a look at some of our underwater discoveries in the exhibition; walk over water into the Iron Age on your crannog tour; and test your skills at ancient crafts and technology. In the Spring and Summer, you can also hire one of our dugout canoes, weather permitting. Special events run regularly featuring 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 giftshop offering an excellent selection of books, crafts, and related items. Or enjoy light refreshments from our snackbar.
