Events at The Scottish Crannog Centre

Each year The Scottish Crannog Centre offers 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.
