Experience the life, tools, and the technologies from 2,500 years ago in our Iron Age Ingenuity Event.

Have a go at ancient crafts and learn more about the skills our ancestors had from creating incredible dyed textiles, to intricate ceramics and kiln firings, to the magic and mystery of the blacksmith’s forge. Tuck into some tasty treats and foraged foods inspired by the resourcefulness of the Crannog dwellers. Get your hands dirty and help us think big about the people that lived on this land in the Iron Age. 

Join the Crannog community and Brittania XIV to explore how people in Medieval Scotland used the skills and technologies of their Iron Age ancestors, developing and changing them into some of the technologies we recognise today. There will be live demonstrations of crafts, lots of hands-on opportunities to make things to take home with you, and there will also be the famous Boar Hunt to take part in. Cooking demonstrations, textiles, woodworking, weaponry, and much more! 

Tickets are now available for our biggest evening event of 2024, where music and storytelling come together on the Summer Solstice! We will have live performances from award-winning musicians from across Scotland and beyond. We are currently finalising our headline acts, which will be revealed shortly, but you are guaranteed an unforgettable night of Solstice magic by the thatched and woven roundhouses. 

Our site will be taken over by new and established storytellers from across Scotland as they weave together stories, land, and nature. They will be performing throughout the site on Sunday the 30th with their works inspired by life in the Iron Age and the Crannog community. 

Saturday the 13th of July will be the launch of the Festival of Archaeology held by the British Council for Archaeology. There will be crafts, music, activities, and storytelling throughout the day and much more to be released soon.

Celebrate the summer Iron Age style! With ancient games, you won’t believe are this old, to fun crafts, competitions, and more- the site is teeming with life. Wolanski’s Pole and Aerial fitness will return for circus workshops by the Loch, including aerial hope, acrobatics, and more. Dress up in flower crowns and new Celtic jewellery to look your best on this spectacular summer’s day in Scotland. 

Our biggest event of the year! Over the span of four days meet the craftspeople, artists, storytellers, and musicians who keep alive the traditions of people over 2,000 years ago. From traditional pigments to blacksmithing, leatherworking, silver casting, stone carving, to woodworking, our Iron Village will be bustling with life and knowledge.

 

Always our most popular event of the year, you will be blown away by the creativity and craftsmanship on display at this unique Village event. 

In partnership with UNESCO chair for Refugee Integration through Languages and the Arts we invite you to a weekend filled with craft and stories of Scottish culture today and the past in our Rise and Shine event. Join us as we share the tales that have survived through generations while celebrating the new stories that have come to Scotland through various means, making our home the bright and inclusive place it is today. Meet craftspeople, artists, and musicians from across Scotland and beyond, to celebrate sustainable lifestyles and crafts.

Celebrate the harvest period at the Scottish Crannog Centre by taking part in our ‘Great Iron Age Bake Off!’ Enjoy food cooked on the open fire, and step into the role of a judge to determine which of our teams’ dishes is the best. You wouldn’t believe the past could be so delicious! 

Celebrate the night when the veil between the spirit world and the mortal world disappears, when the last of the harvest has been brought in, and the winter begins. Immerse yourself in our Iron Age Village and warm your feet by the fire, listen to stories and songs, and witness our ritual wicker burn on the beach. A magical evening not too be missed, fancy dress is encouraged!
