The Scottish Crannog Centre

2,500 years ago, some people across Scotland lived in Iron Age loch-dwellings known as “Crannogs”. 17 of these have been found on Loch Tay in Perthshire and since 1980, we’ve explored these ancient dwellings and in 1997 a replica based on excavation results was built and became the showpiece of the Scottish Crannog Centre.

Despite the destruction of the Crannog due to a fire in 2021, we have rebuilt and become bigger and better than ever, thanks to the efforts of many through fundraising, development, and dedication. We are delighted to be open to the public as of April 1st.

While we don’t have a crannog over the water yet, there’s still lots to do!

Explore our museum which holds ancient artifacts, and our Iron Age village, crafted with locally sourced materials, showcasing traditional craftsmanship with hands-on activities. Join expert-led tours and soon you will be able to witness the first of THREE crannogs being constructed over the water!

Open daily from 10am to 4pm, our site offers guided tours and some delicious local treats and Glen Lyon coffee at our café.
