Public Outreach

The team at the Scottish Crannog Centre posses many skills which can be showcased at events throughout Scotland.

Our guides are experts in engaging members of the public, school-children or expert groups and have attended many public outreach events where we promoted the Iron Age, the Crannog, learning and Scottish history.  

The Directors and staff became involved in the Carpow Logboat exhibition at Perth Museum when they assisted in the thatched roof entrance to the exhibition; made costumes for visitors to wear; assisted and advised in the creation of a replica log-boat which is situated at the Scottish Crannog Centre and can be hired out for paddling into the Iron Age adventure.  

The Team also attended Perth & Kinross Heritage Trust's Prehistory Day in Perth city centre during 2015 where they demonstrated wire jewellery and pendant-making along with Iron Age cooking.   

Staff and Directors headed out to Kelvingrove Museum in Glasgow to present the Iron Age as part of the 2015 Festival of Museums.

In June 2016 the Team were invited to demonstrate wire jewellery-making, basket-making and woodworking at the Bronze Age Fair at Kilmagadwood, Kinross.

We also headed to Glen Nevis in August for the Dun Deardail Archaeology Festival where we cooked wild boar sausages over an open-fire with walkers and those heading up to the vitrified fort.  The team also demonstrated woodwork and basketry to over 500 people.
