4.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
The Scottish Crannog Centre is a reconstruction of an early Iron Age loch-dwelling. You will learn all about crannogs, a type of ancient homestead found throughout Scotland and Ireland dating from 2,500 years ago. These structures were built out in the water as defensive homesteads and represented symbols of power and wealth. This authentic re-creation is based on excavation evidence. Your visit includes a self-guided exhibition, a guided crannog tour, and ancient crafts and technology demonstrations. A gift shop offers books, crafts, and other souvenirs. Check ahead for events, which could feature artists, musicians, or skilled craft workers.

  • Found the tour very informative and getting to try the various ancient forms of every day life was great.
  • Fantastic place. I was fortunate enough to go there on a Samhain celebration. It was really great.
  • But!! The woman who did the tour was grim and did no favours for the attraction. She spoke more about her own farm and confused potted theories than the deep historical significance of the Crannog. Worth a visit only if you are lucky enough to avoid her. Wear warm clothing as the Crannog is drafty cold and dark, everything the original was not when occupied.
  • Great place
  • Good exhibitions and reconstruction. well worth a visit. Great storytelling brings 2500 years ago ti life
