Wonderful visit. Warm welcome by the staff who where very helpful and friendly. Very knowledgeable and happy to chat. Loved our tour with Rachel as we learnt loads and especially enjoyed tasting the nettle tea. Looking forward to a revisit later on in the year.

Fabulous experience, brought to life by Rich. Very informative and he is obviously very passionate about his subject. Probably the most enjoyable talk on any subject that I have experienced in my many years!

A unique experience. My wife and I arrived very late in the day, but not too late for Rachel and Dirk to give us and another couple a wonderful guided tour, complete with fire-making. If you're lucky enough to be in the area, don't miss this!

Despite it been a cold and rather damp day in april I really enjoyed the visit been able to be hands on and really experience tools and technology from the bronze age helps to bring it alive and makes it fun.

What a fantastic visit! Our guide was very knowledgeable and delivered interesting facts in a humerous way. Thank you for keeping such important history alive.

Wow! What an amazing, engaging, inspired place and community. Obviously a labor of love, The Crannog Center evokes a sense of the true history of the people who lived in this beautiful, magical place. Highly recommended!

What a fabulous day out! The staff are all so friendly, interesting and knowledgeable. We visited while the ‘Ways with Wood’ event was on. As well as turning wood, we had lessons on wooden bowl and spoon making, how to start a fire using two pieces of wood, metal tool making and how to grind grain using a grinding stone. It was so cosy sitting around the hearth fire in the crannog hearing in detail about daily life during the Iron Age. A huge 'Thank you' to all of the staff.

My mum and I visited the centre on 18.5.2017. We loved the mix of practical archeology and theory. The staff were friendly, knowledgeable and humorous. Thanks in particular to our guide Richard.
