Scottish Crannog Centre

Scottish Crannog Centre

Crannogs are circular ancient loch-dwellings found throughout Scotland and Ireland, seemingly built as extensions to individual homes in order to accommodate extended families. Being a product of their environment they are also known as artificial or modified natural islands.

In this part of the world, Crannogs were originally timber built roundhouses, supported on piles or stilts driven into the Loch bed.

Although modified Crannogs have been used up until the 17th Century AD, the earliest Crannog known to be built was over 5000 years ago. Their uses have been identified as ranging from homesteads, status symbols, refuges, hunting and fishing stations and even holiday residences.

At the Scottish Crannog Centre you will get to experience first-hand these amazing dwellings at a unique 5 star visitors and educational centre. Take the Crannog Tour and walk into the Iron Age, view the exhibition to discover the underwater world, and take on the skills challenge at ancient crafts and technology. There is something to keep everyone occupied. The spring and summer weather permits experiencing hire of the dugout canoes should you wish. There are also numerous special events that take place throughout the year for you to enjoy in a bid to bring history into the present.

There is also a Gift Shop stocking a great selection of books, crafts and such items, including refreshments.

Opening times:

Daily from 1st April to 30th October

Time: 10.00am - 5.30 pm

The Scottish Crannog Centre is situated in Kenmore and is ten minutes’ drive from the Moness Resort and is a unique attraction worth a visit.
