Events

Each 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.

Our 20th anniversary celebratory programme for 2017 recognises the importance of our unique Crannog collection discovered during our underwater research. Each month we will feature at least one artefact in recognition of the skills of our Iron Age ancestors. Ultimately, as we expand and funding permitting, we will be able to display the majority of the collection at the Scottish Crannog Centre.
