Discover how and why these ancient people built their homes in the water, and experience first-hand how they lived at the awardwinning Scottish Crannog Centre.
A visit to the Centre includes a self-guided exhibition, a guided crannog tour, and 'hands-on' ancient crafts and technology demonstrations. There is also a themed giftshop in which to browse offering an excellent selection of books, crafts, and related items. Weather permitting, you can also hire one of our replica dugout canoes. 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. All in all, an excellent day out for adults and children alike, from ages 4+.
